Give a Minute is a new application designed by Local Projects that’s like a 311 (or basic civic services hotline) and a virtual billboard for citizen ideas: It allows people to register direct feedback to their local government, and places them in a public forum.
Give a Minute asks: Hey Chicago, what would encourage you to walk, bike or take CTA more often? Text: 312-380-0436 or http://www.giveaminute.info

It’s available online now, and will later appear in the 9/11 Memorial Museum, scheduled to open next fall on the 10-year anniversary of the attacks.
