The Purpose City

Public City got to play with urban leaders and citizens to imagine the future of cities. Taking lessons learned from the New Cities Summit, the Purpose City workshop expanded on ethics & policy, urban design, and people & products.

--- Spending the day at the Purpose City workshop in Dallas. About 60 people taking big concepts and getting our hands dirty hackathon-style to put them into prototypes that could really work. Excited to be with some of the world's leading urban planners and thinkers.

  4. "The first session of the People & Products team was to venture out into the Dallas Arts District and unpack our hypothesis that a city of the future was one driven by purpose. To put this to the test we asked anyone we could find on the street to finish the sentence "I feel a sense of purpose when...". Some answers were expected and easily fit into "personal growth" or "something greater than themselves" categories (set up in Aaron Hurst's The Purpose Economy"), but others seemed to fall in a different category all together. I found it telling that this question was so difficult for many people. Sadly our society doesn't currently ask about personal purpose that often. That can change going forward." -Cale Sears, Public City Intern & Purpose City participant.
  5. Dallas citizens talked with us in the arts district and Klyde Warren park about what gives them purpose. #purposecity
