Civic Engagement

Civic engagement means working to make a difference in the civic life of our communities and developing the combination of knowledge, skills, values and motivation to make that difference. It means promoting the quality of life in a community, through both political and non-political processes. It refers to the ways in which citizens participate in the life of a community in order to improve conditions for others or to help shape the community’s future.This term has been primarily used in the context of younger people. CitizenLab wants to offer a digital platform to city governments so they can communicate with their citizens.
