GOOD’s Global Citizenship Project is looking for five awesome innovators from around the globe with creative and scalable projects that strengthen the social fabric of their communities.
The five global fellows will come to GOOD HQ in Los Angeles for a pop-up fellowship to elevate and expand their work in order to create more equitable and successful neighborhoods.
The pop-up fellowship will include a collaborative workshop to create a community innovation toolkit, participation in an evening of programming highlighting the fellows’ work, and partnership with the GOOD Local Los Angeles Chapter to test out just how well their projects can be reborn in a different city, culture, and community.
Call it globally-networked hyperlocalism.
We believe that strong, equitable, and thriving neighborhoods are the backbone of shaping a community of active and influential people moving the world forward.
Our goal is to create a collaborative international meeting place where ideas are shared across borders and projects to make the world better come to life both online and off.
Come join us.
Applications are open from April 3 to April 30, 2013 (three days after the first inaugural Neighborday, a global event to celebrate neighbors, blocks, and the spirit of Neighboring).
