Building a Bridge Between Citizens and Government

Civis is a non-profit platform that works to enable effective dialogue between governments and
citizens on draft laws and policies. It is a community-driven platform that engages with citizenry
by offering support to shape laws through public consultations, built and maintained by Civic
Innovation Foundation. Civis works on five key areas: urban development, environment, social
justice, information technology and health. It aggregates all the draft documents the government
seeks feedback on, along with summaries in simple English, and engages with citizen feedback.
It has created open source toolkits on civic engagement, which can be implemented in low
literacy areas, as well as an open source platform. The feedback received is then analysed and
shared with the government and assists government capacity to gather actionable insights and
run effective consultations.

What excites us about their work:

  • Emphasis to bridge the gap between citizens and government, making legislative processes more inclusive and reflective of the public’s needs through its community-driven platform
  • Fostering a participatory democracy where citizens are more informed and involved in civic matters by encouraging public feedback on draft laws and policies
  • Civis also focuses on raising public awareness and educating citizens on issues of civic importance, which is critical for an informed and active citizenry.
