Our COVID consultation journey: from a small initiative to the desk of the president

Will the pandemic be a turning point, or will we go back to normal once the lockdown is over? This was the most pressing question for a variety of civic tech organisations in France.

Chloé describes how, by forming an alliance, these disparate groups were able to conduct a national consultation that examined what people wanted the future to look like — and, crucially, what they are prepared to give up in order to get it. The results were so significant that they ended up informing the President's COVID response.
