Conversation about civic engagement in smart city initiatives


My name is Teska and I am currently writing my masterthesis about civic engagement in the smart city developments. As a case I am analyzing this platform and look how different stakeholders position civic engagement, since the citizen is presented as an important link between the different stakeholders. I am looking for people that are also interested in the role of citizens within the smart city developments. Do you have a company or project that is focused on citizens or do you mainly follow the theme Citizens & Living on this platform?

Send me a direct message or email to It will be valuable to talk with some people about this subject next to my own analysis.

Thank you in advance!

Hi Teska, Engage Citizen is probably, one of the most advanced co-creation platform for citizen engagement. It is a two-sided platform: for citizens is a citizenry social network and for municipal agencies is a citizen-centric eGov system! My activity in Smart Cities arena is focus on Smart Citizens and Smart Business Ecosystems so if I can assist you in any form do not hesitate contacting me...
