The past decade has seen a proliferation in Civic Tech for crowdsourcing, including a vast array of ideation and online deliberation tools.
But amid a flourishing tech landscape, we’ve seen far fewer high-level national institutions that are willing to use or integrate such tools into formal political processes.
Based on Nesta’s current research within the UK Parliament, and through a number of structured exercises, attendees of this workshop have the chance to examine what is necessary to bring crowdsourcing into parliamentary decision-making, and increase the opportunities for civic engagement.
TICTeC supports the mission of the non-profit mySociety by bringing together practitioners, commentators, academics and funders to debate, network, and share research and knowledge in the civic tech field.
