For the first time in history, our participatory tools give citizens more power than ever before, to make a change. Ecosystems become more interconnected, societies become more diverse. In an ever more interdependent society, it´s important to build open platforms to connect ecosystems with each other - international and beyond. Democratic engagement needs a number of communication tools available and accessible for every citizen. Open source platforms may be a key for information. But still there are many ways of communication: face-to-face, one-to-many, many-to-one, different media and various types (news, talks, chats, comments,...) – which are the most valuable ones? Furthermore, public spaces – where democratic engagement occurs – are changing – on- and offline. Therefore, civic identities are changing. But in what way?
How can we foster emotional engagement between citizens - not only the most connected ones - and the city, to improve their sense of belonging and ultimately to spark action?
