The Tech > Participatory democracy > Engagement tech - (510)

Perhaps the core premise of civic tech is that it can improve civic engagement. Whether in concert with formal governmental bodies or independent of them, civic tech promises to help citizens (in the Latin sense, of the city) engage with one another to share power in the pursuit of building just societies.

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.
