VIDEO: New Voices – The Civic Technology and Open Government Opportunity – Steven Clift

From: Joly M.
Sent on: Friday, December 27, 2013 6:10 AM

This was a spirited presentation, full of both data and wisdom on how local communities can engage online. Steven Clift is refreshingly open and practical, ready to adopt any tool or platform that will enhance his goal of bringing people together to express their civic voice.

On a brief visit to NYC civic technology leader Steven Clift, a White House Champion of Change for Open Government, at short notice set up a presentation - New Voices - The Civic Technology and Open Government Opportunity at the UNDP offices on December 18 2013. At issue is whether growing open government and civic technology will ironically lead to greater concentration of power among fewer, often similar voices or will more open government and community engagement online lead to better government decisions, stronger communities and more problem-solving? Clift highlighted myth-busting research from the Pew Internet and American Life project and shared unique highlights from E-Democracy's BeNeighbors.org initiative that is designed to foster local neighborhood engagement online that builds bridges across income, race, and native-born and immigrant communities.
