What’s an intervention?
Interventions are the activation of your amazing idea to improve your city. To be more specific an intervention is a community-based project, led by an individual, a group of like-minded citizen(s), neighbours, or an organization. These projects, be they whimsical and fun or advocating for social justice and change, are a simple, often low-cost way for people to showcase their ideas for a better city. Interventions respond to the needs of the public—either through the social community, in public spaces or the built environment—with a goal to stimulate community involvement. They aim is to inspire participants and onlookers alike—fostering a strong sense of community and positive change.
