It’s hard for many people to stay actively engaged since often access to resources is fragmented, there is limited transparency in how their activities have an impact, and tools that might exist are not always engaging experiences.
Many people either don’t know where to start to get more engaged with civic life or have a hard time staying engaged. How do we generate new civic engagement? How to we keep people involved? Increasing civic engagement will help ensure that our entire community has an active and effective voice in how we grow as a society. Fostering this sort of engagement, by definition, will tie people closer to solutions to problems in their community, creating a dialog centered around action.
Let's gamify civic participation, connect people to options, and find ways to report on impact metrics to help keep people engaged.
