CitizenLab Team

Democracy for the Digital Age

CitizenLab is committed to helping citizens have their voice heard, and making governments better understand their citizens.

Who are we?

CitizenLab is a civic engagement platform on which citizens co-create their city. Our solution is the medium for municipalities and all types of governments to make decision-making more democratic, more transparent and more collaborative. CitizenLab aims at making tomorrow’s governments more citizen-centric, through user-friendly cloud software, insightful data analytics and focus on mobile.

At CitizenLab, we come to work every day because we want to shape digital citizen participation. As an unstoppable urbanisation is taking place and cities might become more important than nations, it’s time to unlock the powerhouse of collective intelligence that is residing in our cities!

What drives us

Our company values go hand in hand with how we envision stronger local democracies.


Magic only happens when people come together and can have substantial discussions. There’s no such a thing as democracy without a public debate.


Citizens should feel empowered when voicing their ideas. We offer them a platform on which it is a joy to participate.


With our built-in admin functionalities, we make it easier for governments to close the feedback loop by providing timely comments on proposals given by citizens.


We learned that by increasing the relevance of participation options, the engagement goes up significantly. CitizenLab offers a sleek user experience by focussing on spatial, social and thematic
