OurCityLove

With increasingly aging populations, neighborhoods filled with new parents and many people with disabilities, it is often difficult for cities to adapt. Dr. Chong-Wey Lin and Momo Huang’s own experience witnessing family members and others excluded from participating in social events inspired OurCityLove. The social enterprise creates dignified jobs for a person who doesn’t necessarily fit the standard job description. OurCityLove created the world’s first Friendly Restaurant app, allowing people with both visual and mobile-impairments to understand which restaurants are most accessible and where to find them. The company has created a number of apps, including: Friendly MRT, Friendly Pediatricians, Friendly Lactation rooms and Friendly Drivers. Currently, OurCityLove is present in 11 cities, has created more than 400 friendly jobs and has surveyed over 4,000 restaurants.

OurCityLove is a 2016 Global Urban Innovator showcased at the NewCities Summit 2016 in Montréal, Canada.
