The Arizona We Want
The Arizona We Want sets a clear goal for the state: "Make Arizona 'the place to be' for talented young people." As a next step for the state, young people must help create the cities and towns that they want to live in. That's where The Manifesto Project comes in.
A statewide initiative
To capture the authentic voice, dreams and vision of a generation of young leaders, we need a statewide initiative. Young leaders from more than 50 cities and towns from across Arizona will host Manifesto events in their communities between April 9 and December 15, 2013.
The Manifesto Project will ask three probing questions about what young leaders desire for the state.
Description: Our generation is ___.
Ideal: I would stay in Arizona forever if ___.
Action: I will lead the change I want to see by ___.
At Manifesto events, we invite young leaders to submit and vote on responses to the open-ended questions. The top responses from each event form its Manifesto and are aggregated to create the statewide Manifesto, to be released in early 2014.
