Festival of Ideas Seeks Feedback on Downtown Issues

Must Read

The Festival of Ideas is fast approaching. Among the many downtown organizations taking part in the unprecedented event is the NYU School of Public Service, which is facilitating an interactive conversation about issues important to Lower Manhattan’s many diverse communities.

NYU Professor Shankar Prasad asked us to pass along the following request for your participation:

NYU Wagner wants to hear your voice!  We’re working hard to bring together the voices of people from a variety of Downtown settings, from residents to organizations, schools, churches and museums, to highlight key problems – and surface promising solutions – facing Downtown NYC. This way, at the Festival of Ideas for the New City, we can help effect meaningful change by bringing policymakers and the community that they represent to the same table and target the most popular issues of concern for the community. To do this, we are asking you to send us a checklist of top issues/concerns around the following question: “What are the main issues/concerns facing Downtown NYC today that need improvement”. We will be using  yourlist.org, a powerful online medium dedicated to aggregating citizen views. Once you’ve identified your main issues, you can either create your checklist on yourlist.org or send them directly to eas595@nyu.edu – we will be happy to create a profile on yourlist.org with your checklist of issues. On May 7, we will hold a “World Café” event at Wagner’s Puck Building to involve leading policy makers and community members in discussing these policy concerns and possible solutions.  We look forward to hearing from you and meeting you at the Festival in May!
