6 Tech Ideas To Transform Citizen Participation in Governance
In an election year, there’s a need for smart ideas to be injected into governance and technology has a key role to play.
Tech-In Governance is organizing a 48-hour event that would gather ideas, people and digital tools aimed at creating novel web & mobile solutions to transform citizen participation in governance.
Inspired by SICamp, Tech-In Governance would bring together some of the best software developers, designers, marketing communications experts and governance professionals to turn the selected ideas into tools and social start-ups (with a working prototype) in 48hrs.
The organization is currently looking for novel ideas for web/mobile based tools that can help transform citizen participation in Governance in Nigeria.
The key criterion is for all ideas to use web/mobile to improve the participation of Nigerians in how Nigeria is governed.
If you have a great idea for citizen participation in Nigeria that meets this criterion, you can submit here.
Your idea will need to be focused on addressing the specified need (citizen participation in governance), and technology must be central to its purpose and it must be novel (something that’s new and never been done before in Nigeria).
The event scheduled for 24th to 26th of March, 2011 would provide an open space and a living lab with the aim of transforming a set of early-stage ideas into prototypes in 48hrs.
Participants will be organised into teams to work on each of the best 6 ideas.
