Connected Citizen

How will future citizens remain digitally connected with each other, with public services and with the socio-political issues of the day?

The Connected Citizen Challenge explores how we can design and configure technology to support equitable citizen engagement around sociopolitical issues, support public consultation and democratic processes, and engage with policy makers.

Areas we’re interested in exploring:

  • Misinformation, fake news and political participation
  • Inequalities of connectedness
  • Citizen data, sensemaking and collective action
  • Digital public services and policymaking
