There’s lots to love about Philadelphia—Fairmount Park and the Schuylkill River Trail, our world-class museums and vibrant dining scene. But just like any other city, there’s always room for improvement.
This week on Be Well Philly, we want to hear your big ideas for how to make the Philadelphia region a happier, healthier place to live. Maybe you have an idea for how to get kids to eat healthier foods, or a way to curb our city’s (icky) smoking habit. Maybe you know of a great health or fitness initiative in another city that Philly should adopt. The sky’s the limit here, so think outside the box—think big.
Here’s the best part: By leaving a comment on this post with your big idea, you’ll be entered into a drawing to win a pair of tickets to Philadelphia magazine’s upcoming ThinkFest, a two-day gathering of Philly’s best and brightest minds—the people who are working hard to make a huge impact in our city—on November 30th and December 1st. You’ll get a chance to hear from innovators involved in city planning, the food industry and, of course, healthcare. Check out the full lineup of speakers here.
You have until 5 p.m. next Monday, November 19th, to submit your big idea—just leave a comment below. One idea (and one comment) counts as one entry, and you can submit as many ideas as you’d like. On Tuesday morning, we’ll select two winners at random and contact them via email; the winners will each get a pair of tickets to the big event.
Got it? Good. Now, start sounding off, Be Wellers—we’re dying to hear what you’ve got.
