Financial Times And Citi Name Finalists For 2013 FT/Citi Ingenuity Awards

The initiative, which takes advantage of growing global demand for ornamental aquarium fish, involves technical training in aquaculture and the introduction of small scale production technology that allows budding entrepreneurs to efficiently grow thousands of fish in small backyard spaces at very low cost.

More than 130 young people are now grouped into urban farm clusters, sharing information and resources to achieve lower production costs and grow better quality fish which are then sold to local exporters and marketed internationally.

National Portrait Gallery

The National Portrait Gallery in Washington DC developed a program that targeted underserved urban teenagers -- often accused of disturbing the peace by local residents, including on the Gallery’s own steps – and empowered them with skills for the creative economy.

Local teenagers serve as a firm of "creative consultants," spending months conceiving, planning, marketing, staffing, managing and evaluating a “Project Runway” type fashion show at the Gallery. The program was created in partnership with ARTLAB Plus, a teen space in the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden.

The show, held in the summer of 2011, galvanized the partner organizations to begin planning for a long-term, sustainable network to support Washington DC teens’ learning objectives, career development and life goals.


SeeClickFix -- launched in New Haven, Connecticut four years ago and now used in more than 130 cities across the US -- is a website and mobile app that empowers citizens to address everyday problems in their neighborhood by publicly documenting and routing them to their local government.

At the same time, it facilitates a more efficient and transparent response from governments to these requests through a customized dashboard.

In addition to hundreds of thousands of issues that have been resolved by local governments through the program, SeeClickFix has led to citizens solving problems on their streets they would previously have left to the city.
