This week, Knight brought together some of the top thinkers in the country at TED for a conversation about our Technology for Engagement Initiative. In a lively exchange, TED participants explored the idea of using technology to accelerate the 'engagement of residents in the most pressing challenges they face in their communities.
Issues raised include ways to:
- Reinvent participatory democracy
- Create meaningful participation between elections
- Use open data for citizens based solutions
- Engage citizens in applying their expertise to solve community challenges
- Launch games that engage citizens in real community challenges
- Make online engagement real in the physical world
