Billions of dollars are spent trying to improve the lives of low income people in American cities every year. What actually works? Who has to be involved for real change to happen?
Living Cities wants to share our experiences and lessons at South-by-Southwest (SXSW) Interactive 2016. And we need your help to make that happen!
Vote for Saving Gotham: Transforming America’s Cities, our proposed SXSW session, by September 4, 2015!
SXSW presents a uniquely great opportunity for us to engage with thousands of private sector and tech leaders around how they can support and participate in social change work in cities. During the session, Living Cities’s Director of Collective Impact, Tynesia Boyea-Robinson, will host a discussion about what it takes to create a new urban practice that gets better outcomes for low income people faster.
Help us spread good ideas and promising practices by voting and commenting on our proposal by September 4th! Your vote will determine if our session gets selected.
Tynesia will present a no B.S. run down of what we see that works, what doesn’t, and why. SXSW attendees will learn how business and tech can partner with the public sector to both benefit from and support change in places.
- How can business, tech, government and nonprofits work together to drive change in cities?
- What does it take to dramatically improve the lives of low-income people faster in America’s cities?
- Looking across the country, what strategies for change have worked, what haven’t, and why?
