Every day, governments become more open and transparent, inviting their citizens to participate in governing processes ranging from vetting a public work to creating laws, policies, and regulations. In this desire for openness, citizen consultations have become just one technique governments use to collect first-hand information from their constituents that they would otherwise have no way of effectively obtaining.
In this sense, many of these efforts are evolving to allow greater accessibility and ease for users. These transformations occur in the field of technology for citizen participation and many of these innovations deserve to be used by any person or organization that wants to contribute to improving their environment. One of these cases of innovation is participa.conl.mx.
For these reasons, in an effort to be open, transparent and always seeking to share knowledge, this guide aims to allow anyone interested in carrying out a digital public consultation process framed in a collective intelligence methodology.
To this end, PubPub has proven to be a tool to generate citizen consultation processes on a wide scale and therefore, the PubPub and the Consejo Nuevo León for Strategic Planning (CONL) teams have organized this toolkit with everything you need to replicate this process without major complications.
