"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.

Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has"

Government is a slow and tedious process. While it often includes citizen and neighborhood involvement, non-governmental, private organizations have created movements and interesting groups which can create positive change in our cities and towns.

I am fascinated by the way groups are created and how they influence public decision making. This blog merely recognizes them and forwards the description of these groups from their own websites.

Geodesign Summit

Location: International

Website: www.geodesignsummit.com

The Geodesign Summit is an annual gathering of professionals interested in using geospatial technologies to arrive at the best and most sustainable design solutions. The two-day summit focuses on Geodesign frameworks and concepts, geospatial technologies that support Geodesign, and sharing real-world examples of Geodesign in practice.

The overall goal of the Geodesign Summit is to help people find innovative solutions to the most pressing challenges by fusing design processes with geospatial technologies.

The Geodesign Summit draws from a multitude of interdisciplinary experiences. GIS and design professionals across all industries.

The Geodesign Summit is the ultimate event for anyone working at the intersection of geography and design. The breadth and depth of sessions, the opportunities for hands-on learning, and the many ways to cultivate skills and relationships make it a must-attend event.

Network with Geodesign thought leaders; funders and other researchers; and regulators and government agencies.

Observe Geodesign in action—the intersection between design and geographic space.

Understand how Geodesign will impact your field, and how you can use it.

Participate in the continuing evolvement of Geodesign.
