Citizen Engagement

The Citizen Engagement group is a practical forum designed to engage participants in sharing, developing and improving knowledge on civic engagement. The group hosts conversation on the group wall through sharing experiences and connecting ideas.

While we know a great deal about citizen engagement, and it is a growing area of research and action, it is not always clear what government can and should do in this regard. Local governments can be active contributors to meaningful citizen engagement, but they must act in partnership with a wide range of other actors.

Within this group participants explore successful pairings of local government citizen engagement activities with organizational goals. All Knowledge Network users interested in this topic are welcome to join the group.

I'm working with Smart Cities Council and ThunderMaps to explore best practices for how small and medium size cities around the world use the rapidly growing number of new software tools to engage citizens in a meaningful way.

Check-out Peak Democracy Inc's Open City Hall platform for engaging citizens: PeakDemocracy.com . Hundreds of small and medium size cities have been using this cloud-based service to engage their citizens in meaningful topics.

Hi Barbara,
Peak Democracy has Open Town Hall for broad applications in collecting citizen opinion and expanding the field of input. Balancing Act is a fun, simple software product for citizen input regarding budget challenges.

Both companies have created feedback conduits that are user-friendly, and allow for extensive reporting formats.

Hope that helps.

Hello,
Are there any professional organizations focused specifically on citizen engagement? I'd like to join some in this area for knowledge and networking purposes.
