What could FutureGov fix in a week?

How can we enable a place where citizens:

  • Use technology not for technology's sake, but to enhance the way they feel about and understand the environment they live in.

  • Understand that they are part of a wider system, with neighbours, governments, technology (and chaotic events) and behave accordingly.

  • Take a wider view beyond their individual motivations and are actively engaged in local government and community issues, rather than passively observing events.

  • Engage with governments equally as collaborative partners and are interested in the process behind this.
