Detroit Synergy

Detroit Synergy is a non profit which connects residents to work on community projects together which improve the city. How can we build off this already existing community and web platform?

Many of the inspirations posted up have involved connecting citizens to collaborate on public space improvement projects, and I would like to share this one because it already operates in Detroit. Therefore, can we work with this already existing community of do-ers to amplify their great work?

Through an online platform, Detroit Synergy connects people who are undertaking projects to revitalise the city. It allows people to join existing projects or to recruit volunteers for this own. Any individual can submit a project proposal and recruit other members to form a project team. Then the team receives assistance and support from the group as a whole.
