What’s the issue?

We live in a world in which the most important decisions are primarily made by a small group of highly privileged people.

The quality of decisions made by such narrow groups of individuals is often highly unsatisfactory, and even damaging.

Decision-makers often have little or no knowledge of the topic in question, and exclude the knowledge and desires of the very people whose lives they affect the most – while they themselves remain entirely unaffected by their own misguided choices.

Our mission

Thanks to technological developments, information is now more freely and widely available, active participation is easier than ever to facilitate, and awareness of the right to be actively involved as citizens is increasingly strong among the general population.

Our mission is to bring decision-making back to the people and their communities, through nurturing e-democracy and developing innovative technologies for higher quality collaborative decision-making.

What is a Civic Hacktivist?

What is the Civic Hactivist Community?

With your help, together we will build a vibrant community for the international meeting of minds of all those working towards the same goal – academics, researchers, civic tech brains, civic initiatives, communities, NGOs, foundations, alliances, educational institutions and more.

It is a space in which to exchange knowledge and ideas about e-democracy, collaborative decision-making, and collectively overcoming challenges.

Knowledge shared in the community will include

  • Scientific research about collaborative decision-making and its impacts
  • Technological tools and solutions to improve collaborative decision-making
  • Practical examples of collaborative decision-making bringing positive change

Our Hacktivist Community is vibrant and has many international active partners.

Your help is needed to:

  • Establish the roles and identity of the community’s hactivists
  • Shape the creation of the all-important digital meeting place
  • Co-create a physical event for civic hacktivists to come together
  • ... and more!

Become a Founding Member

We have the vision, inspiration and energy to make this amazing - now all we need is you!

The community will be built in a collaborative, inclusive, transparent, and creative way – become a founder member and help shape the future of e-democracy.
