The Future of Government/Citizen Engagement

From The Future of Civic Engagement in a Broadband-Enabled World, a symposium hosted by the MIT Center for Future Civic Media in cooperation with the Federal Communications Commission's Broadband Initiative (broadband.gov).

From the Mayor of Newark's tweets to the President's online town halls, technology has already changed how the public engages with their government. In a world of ubiquitous broadband, this interaction can radically change how government operates and develops policy. This panel will explore how broadband can transform government/citizen engagement.

Moderator: Jerry Mechling, Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University

Speakers:

  • Christopher Csikszentmihalyi, MIT Center for Future Civic Media
  • Nick Grossman, The Open Planning Project
  • Laurel Ruma, O'Reilly Media
  • John Wonderlich, The Sunlight Foundation
