Dear Rochester’s ICI Team,

 

Today it’s a great day for all of us: your city has become the first municipality in the USA to join the Council of Europe Intercultural Cities Programme, and our family now counts with 126 members, several of which outside Europe. This means a lot of potential for enriching mutual knowledge, exchanging and evolving together. Congratulations to you and to your Mayor and City Council for this important step.

We’ve already sent a congratulation letter to the Mayor and, as Irena said, we’ve widely communicated on the event, relaying also the information and press info you sent. We are now going to build up your city’s page on our website and we would be grateful if you could send us the info you would like to display. You can take inspiration from the page of the city of Melton (Australia) which is on its way to be completed as they joined last week. Besides, you’ll find enclosed the ICC logo that you are encouraged to use wherever appropriate (eg. electronic signatures, brochures, etc.), together with the visibility guidance of the programme.

Site Information
Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.

Definitions
The following defines the various project phases:
  1. Available - a product, program or service is in production
  2. Develop - program or application is being developed
  3. Plan - idea is solid, stakeholders are identified, and there is strong commitment to go forward from all parties.
  4. Concept Phase - idea scoped out with enough details to give an early sizing and/or to build a proof of concept
    demonstration
  5. Pre-concept Phase - an early idea or a requirement.
