Talking Transition describes itself as "an open conversation about the future of New York City. Join New Yorkers online, in the streets, and in a new meeting place on Canal Street to help shape the transition to a new mayor. The election may be over, but you can continue to make your voice, your question, your idea, and your neighborhood heard".
It was initiated by non-governmental organisation/charities and encourages people to participate through an online platform and special events. Talking Transition is local in orientation and concerned with democracy, politics & representation.
It was launched in November 2013 and ends in January 2014.
