“I want _____ in my neighborhood” is the starting point for projects on Neighborland, a service for people to share their ideas and insights for improving their city or neighbourhood and supporting their neighbours’ ideas.
How does it work?
- Registered users can share their insights or support on their neighbours’ ideas or share their own ideas for improving an area and explaining them in detail with text, images, and/or video, and sharing it online.
- All registered users can support ideas and are welcome to contribute to the idea through comments and suggestions.
- A community manager (currently only in New Orleans) is working on the field to help feasible ideas happen.
