Boston’s Mayor, Marty Walsh is taking civic engagement to a whole new level with his Imagine Boston 2030 campaign. Launched in November in preparation for the city’s 400th birthday, the campaign seeks to reimagine the city and encourages Bostonians to:
…stop by City Hall Plaza and take a photo of themselves in front of their futuristic banner, then share the photos on social media-along with their ideas for the future of their city-with the hashtag #ImagineBoston.
Jerome Smith, The Mayor’s Chief of Civic Engagement, said the “Picture Yourself in the Future” campaign is meant to get people engaged.”
