Introduction


This project aims to help boroughs use digital tools and methods to support and improve their democratic functions.

The project first began in response to boroughs’ urgent needs to conduct their elected member meetings online as a result of the Covid crisis. It is now expanding into a broader look at how digital democracy can enable boroughs to engage their communities in more meaningful ways during the Covid recovery period.
