Active citizenship and new technologies

Digitalization has been speeding up during the last 20 years and it keeps growing exponentially.
Digital technology is becoming more and more intertwined with everyday life: from education, financial and energy management to political engagement.

 Even though digitalization brings many possibilities and aspirations, it is also important to acknowledge the need for recognizing and dealing with the challenges it represents for society as a whole.

 

We are witnessing how technology activates the local community, as seen in the Križevci example of local investments into solar power plants on RCTP and City library “Franjo Marković” where the money was collected in just 10 days for the first one and  record 2 days to for the second one!
Activating the society through investing into solar power plants and creating local value through investment reimbursement gives not only an opportunity to keep the economic recourses in the local community but also impacting the environment and society in a positive way.
Another example is platform Sudjeluj!Križevci where citizens can be directly involved in the governance of the city by giving their propositions, voting and debating.

 

Now there are more opportunities than ever to include citizens in governance of their cities, which will only grow in the future, and we need to address and promote it.

 

Through this Climathon we will be answering:

  • In which ways the citizens use technology for creating social and ecological values?
  • How to use technology to create climate change resilience?
  • What are economical benefits of technologies?
