100in1day: meetings to create the city of our dream!
Come (by yourself or with friends) and participate in the ECTO Créatoire, taking place on September 19th, from 6pm to 8pm, to imagine your special iniative to be unveiled during 100in1day Montreal, on October 5th! Confirm your presence so we can prepare enough food for everyone! Thanks to Lisa Gravel for her explication of 100in1day!—
On October 5th, 2013, Montrealers like you and I will perform 100 interventions to improve our city and foster our communities.
What is it?
100in1day is a global movement for citizen-powered change and collaboration, which started in 2012 in Bogota, Colombia. It consists of a minimum of 100 citizen interventions, connecting people around their dreams for a better city and making them happen within a single day. In less than a year, the movement has spread to cities all over the world, and soon, to Montreal!
100in1day Montreal will gather a minimum of 100 civic actions across the city in a single day with the intention of revealing the extent to which, together, we can transform Montreal into the city of our dreams. Any action, be it as small as offering your seat on the bus or as grand as transforming neglected patches of public space, can contribute to sharing public space in a positive way. 100in1day is a festival of doing which celebrates these actions of engaged citizens and which allows us to imagine altogether new ones.
Every Wednesday until September the 25th, come join us at the participatory workshops – also called “créatoires citoyens” – where you will meet other people who want to make a difference in Montreal and contribute with concrete actions. Together, you’ll brainstorm and support each other developing your interventions. You will also be supported by 100in1day’s team, who will help you maximize the impact of your action, so as many people as possible are reached on October 5th.
We are also looking for potential partners to host workshops all across the city. If you are part of an organization willing to get involved in this way, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Just like E-180, we believe in the power of a meeting, and know that together, we have everything we need to create the city of our dreams.
