It’s time for the Going Local Campaign Summer Edition!

June 11th 2012 – August 31st 2012

You can participate in the Summer Going Local Campaign in two steps!

1. ‘Like’ ideas on the ‘Going Local voting page‘. The most Liked idea with a Champion* will be planned as a VizNash Mob** event.

2. Be part of the summer VizNash Mob!

*Champion – Someone willing to be in charge of implementation, given the necessary support to do so. You can volunteer to be an idea’s champion by commenting on it.
**VizNash Mob – a Visualize Nashua crowd ‘mobs’ a deserving business for a few hours providing financial and marketing support. Learn more here.

You can even submit your own ideas. Just email Keith at [email protected] to make sure you’re on the voting page!

 

To get an idea what our Going Local Campaign is all about, read our Going Local Manifesto:

We’re building a vibrant local culture and economy. We’re invested in our community, supporting homegrown talent and food, and nurturing a distinctive, authentic culture that says Nashua is where it’s at.

We’re celebrating the best of our artists and cultural experiences to foster an exciting creative culture; and the best of our entrepreneurs and businesses to grow an innovative local economy.

Whether it’s a farm-to-table restaurant, a marketplace and farmers market, a community garden, an open-mic night or a coworking space for startups and freelancers, we’ll develop the next generation of local in Nashua and establish an incredible sense of community and collaboration while doing it!
