About Ignite

If you had 5 minutes on stage what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds?

Around the world geeks have been putting together Ignite nights to enlighten us – quickly.

For many people, the decisions and efforts to change cities and towns are shrouded in complicated bureaucracy, frustratingly unintelligible rules and regulations. Changes seem to happen suddenly and for unknown reasons, and when the process of change is perceived in this manner, the reception is often negative, the acceptance is slow. Positive change and civic engagement can start with a spark. It can start with a problem, a challenge, a pending development, or even a discussion. Some times all it takes is a different sort of thought, a certain visual image, or a specific little improvement that can energize people to come together to create positive change.
