Digital meets physical: Crowdsource local development with Popularise

Popularise is an online crowdsourcing platform focused on local development. It gives:

– You the power to get involved in local development

– “Builders’ a new way to interact with their local community and customers.

You can find some very original and recourceful ideas here.


How it works:

1. Review Local Projects

A local developer or business starts a drawing board by posting a real project that they are building in your city. They frame the question and ask for your input.

2. Submit your ideas

You help them with their project by submitting ideas that answer their question. You can involve your friends and neighbors and campaign for ideas.

3. Show your support

If you like an idea or want to support a submitted business, vote for it by clicking “Build it!”

4. Join together and build your city

Builders get better ideas and more information. You get places you want and help build a better city.
