Civic engagement is key to successful governance in the 21st century, and cities worldwide are increasingly seeking innovative ways to engage their communities in decision-making. Technology can be a powerful tool for community engagement, but right now civic leaders have to start from scratch when wanting to leverage tech to engage citizens.
Engagement Commons aims to be a comprehensive, dynamic, and accessible resource that both catalogs engagement-focused civic technology and highlights stories of successful use cases. We give funders, city officials, and civic leaders the context and background necessary to identify and deploy the right technologies for their needs.
Engagement Commons is a wiki-based, community-built resource. Contribute by adding an app or organization entry, or sharing an engagement-related story.
