Ideas for Cities: Habitual Ritual

December 24, 2009
Habitual Ritual
Cities could help establish new rituals that are meaningful on a local level, and encourage and support the positive demonstration of the city values.  They would turn the ordinary into the extraordinary, and make doing the right thing part of a citizen’s routine in a way that feels special and compelling.

This is part 41 of a continuing brainstorm on the future of cities, inaugurated at the CEOs for Cities Velocity conference in September, 2009. We’ll post a new idea each day until we run out, at which point we’re counting on you to come up with something smart. Do you have a good idea for improving your city? Add it in the comments below, or tweet it to @GOOD with hashtag #cityideas—we’ll publish the best ones. Tomorrow's idea: Slow City.
