In the last installment of ‘Your Input, Our Future,’ I asked you to Dream Big about your idyllic vision of the future of citizen engagement. In this post, I’d like to ask you to think how we make these visions a reality.
There were several competing visions proposed, so please feel free to choose the one you like the most (or propose your own) as you answer this next question:
What do we need to accomplish in five years to be well on the road towards significantly better citizen engagement? Here are some thoughts to get you started:
- Solid technological infrastructure that enables easy communication between citizens and elected officials in ways that are meaningful and useful to everyone involved.
- Internal government cultures that support meaningful engagement with and responsiveness to citizens.
- The early stages of a rise of a global government norm to utilize technology that gives their citizens easy access to information and communication technologies.
I know that there are many more out there: what are they?
All of your comments will be part of developing the Open Forum Foundation’s five year plan beginning on November 13th.
