What’s GeniUS! all about?

In the past the challenges facing York have often been discussed and decisions made out of the public arena. This website looks to change this by providing a place for everyone to have a voice and be actively involved in finding solutions to specific problems or ‘challenges’. GeniUS! is an online forum to work through the problems the challenges pose and develop solutions that can be taken forward and piloted in the city, creating improvements that benefit us all.    

How does it work?

GeniUS! is the space for you to post and share your ideas with the online community. The best ideas will be developed through workshops with the aim of taking them forward as pilot schemes. Or as we like to call it ‘The Three P’s’ – Post, Participate, Pilot.
