Raleigh of the future: A call for perspectives

Raleigh skyline illustration.

What’s next for Raleigh and our surrounding Wake County communities as we look to the new year? 

We want to bring in a series of voices and perspectives of doers in the Raleigh area that tackle a big question:

How could Raleigh be better for different communities in 2022? 

We’re looking for local doers to write a short 300-400 words on an idea for 2022. It can be serious or fun, civic or cultural. And we need your help in identifying people whose ideas and perspectives you want to hear. 

NOMINATE: Who would you like to see pen a short, first-person perspective on their hopes for the future of our Raleigh + Wake County community? Nominate someone (or yourself) to contribute to be published in our community conversation on 2022. [nomination form]

Deadline to nominate: 12 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 2. 

  • Types of folks we’re looking for: People who are doers, community organizers (formally or informally), folks who reflect different communities. 
  • What we’re not looking for: This isn’t a platform for anyone running for office and it’s not a forum for critiques of individuals. 

Our goal: 8-10 thoughtful ideas that bring in 2022 on a note of hope and creativity. These will be shared at RaleighConvergence.com and weekly in the newsletter beginning Dec. 2.
