Exciting news from GOOD Magazine newsletter today that they’re launching a series of category-specific platforms for thought and action in conjunction with IBM. Their first category to launch last month was Cities, which you can check out at GOOD.is/Cities. We’re especially psyched to see some of the great ideas that were generated during the Velocity salon in Grand Rapids be shared as part of a bigger online brainstorm on how to make cities better places to live in. Have an amazing idea for improving city life while being kind to the planet? Tweet it to @GOOD with hashtag #cityideas and share the wealth. Also in the Cities platform, check out our beer buddy Josh McManus’ urban dispatch from Paris as he travels around Europe for a month on the Marshall Fellowship. Josh is the co-founder of CreateHere in Chattanooga — an inspiring organization that’s been instrumental in the city’s energetic revitalization. He kind of rules.
Finally, a long overdue but heartfelt shout-out to all the wonderful people of Grand Rapids who helped us on our Urban Spelunking mission. You know who you are and how much we ♥ you!
