"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.

Website: www.citymart.com

Citymart.com is the result of a journey that started in 2003 as an initiative to promote cities as real-life laboratories for services in cities.

Living Labs Global was formed as a non-profit association in Denmark with the focus on building a global marketplace for innovations in cities.

Citymart.com was launched as a technology start-up in January 2011. Since November 2012, Citymart.com supersedes the Living Labs Global brand to be followed by the integration of both organizations into a single legal entity by May 2013.
