Civic Innovation Lab

"MAKE THE WORLD WORK, FOR 100% OF HUMANITY, IN THE SHORTEST POSSIBLE TIME, THROUGH SPONTANEOUS COOPERATION, WITHOUT ECOLOGICAL OFFENSE OR THE DISADVANTAGE OF ANYONE.”

- BUCKMINSTER FULLER

Civic Innovation Lab exists to engage the ingenuity of citizens to develop urban solutions through the use of open data, local government support, and a facilitated design process.

Our purpose is to:

  • Prototype new ways citizens can work productively with government and engage a community of designers, developers, nonprofit leaders, artists, activists, data scientists, policy makers, academics, and entrepreneurs to tackle city-wide challenges such as housing, education, small businesses, neighborhood stabilization, and transportation;
  • Use Open Data to create solutions that further our local economy and better our communities;
  • Demonstrate a stakeholder engagement process of designing with and for end users;
  • Activate and connect the civic tech community to experts in government and policy issues to create lasting, impactful solutions.
