GC-Maker-challengeimage-570x345

Are you pioneering a neighborhood-level project so awesome that you think it should happen everywhere?

The Global Neighborhood Challenge: A Pop-Up Fellowship with GOOD’s Global Citizenship Project is looking for five community innovators from around the globe with creative and scalable projects that strengthen the social fabric of their communities.

The five global fellows will come to GOOD HQ in Los Angeles for a pop-up fellowship to elevate and expand their work in order to create more equitable and successful neighborhoods.

The pop-up fellowship will include a collaborative workshop to create a community innovation toolkit, participation in an evening of programming highlighting the fellows’ work, and partnership with the GOOD Local Los Angeles Chapter to test out just how well their projects can be reborn in a different city, culture, and community.

Call it globally-networked hyperlocalism.

Applicants are encouraged to participate in the first inaugural Neighborday, a global event to celebrate neighbors, blocks, and the spirit of Neighboring.
