People are flocking to the world’s metropolises at a rapid rate, and by 2050, it is projected that there will be 6.4 billion people residing in cities. With urban centers in the limelight, Dear City, a new web platform, could not have come at a better time.
The sleek website is an international message board that lets people share their thoughts and opinions - in 500 words or less- about the cities they live in. Anyone can rate and remark about each comment anonymously, providing an open forum of free speech, debate and camaraderie. Modeled after post-it-notes, the comments are divided into several categories, each correlated with a different color, with categories ranging from transportation and housing to health and education. Originally launched in Copenhagen by founders Mikael Staer and Philip Battin, Dear City aims to be a voice for the everyday city dweller to vent, praise and enact change across the world’s major cities.
