The Tech > Participatory democracy > Engagement tech - (501)

Perhaps the core premise of civic tech is that it can improve civic engagement.

Recommended reading:

  • A collection of case studies demonstrating where civic tech interventions have resulted in tangible improvements and benefits for governments/public institutions and their citizens
  • The Equitable Community Engagement Toolkit is an excellent collection of guides and resources for equitably engaging communities in order to share power.
