A revolutionary approach to solving urban challenges

| No responses | Theme: Inequality Dynamics & Changemaking, Places, Work with Communities

The Young Foundation is working with  Innovate York on  GeniUS! Open  – an approach which aims to  revolutionise the way citizens and local organisations can propose ideas to solve social, economic and environmental problems in their city.


GeniUS! was developed by Science City York  and City of York Council.  It  is now being piloted  with Tallinn (Estonia), Siracusa (Italy), and San Sebastian (Spain) through  URBACT – a European initiative encouraging sharing of good practice between  professionals involved in urban policy throughout Europe.


Tricia Hackett has led on  developing evaluation frameworks with each pilot city to highlight priorities and establish how progress will be measured.


The City of York has recently been named one the finalists in the Bloomberg Philanthropies’ Mayor’s Challenge for their innovative work with GeniUS!
