Open Collaboration for Civic Impact

Americans consistently rank government dissatisfaction as the “most important problem facing the U.S.” It has become increasingly clear that a host of different actors–public and private, formal and informal, citizens and communities–will need to work together to successfully address the challenges we face as a society. While civic innovation is a bright spot of hope, the sector is still nascent. Key to catalyzing this new wave of civic solutions will be knowledge sharing and storytelling around success and impact, which is not happening in any standardized, systemic, aggregated way across the sector. We believe that cataloging success (and failure) via an open collaboration project lifecycle will lead to new waves inspired action directed towards more effective ends.
