Gloversville’s 100in1 Day is part of a citizen-driven movement changing the way people experience their cities. The program brings people together from across the community (citizens, non-profits, business and elected officials) to do many small positive actions in one day – and inspire larger actions throughout the year.
These small actions are low-cost community projects that are free, open to anyone and designed to create positive, lasting change. Examples of 100in1 Day projects are plant swaps and giveaways, community art creation, neighborhood potlucks, street-cleaning and flower plantings, welcome signs at city gateways and so much more. The great thing is, the possibilities for projects are endless!

100In1Day was started in 2012 by a group of design students in Bogotá, Colombia who intended to launch six urban interventions that would maximize the potential of their city.
Over beers they decided to be more ambitious and launch 100 urban interventions that would take place in one day.
On May 26, 2012, over 250 urban interventions took place in Bogotá, and a phenomenon was born. It has since spread to over 31 cities around the world.
