Technology can be a tool for re-empowerment

By Emily McDonnell

Yes! Technology – when used correctly – can give a platform to those who feel left behind. At Civocracy we ensure that people are engaged in issues that matter to them. If you discuss political issues in a non-political way – ie. not “how can we improve educational infrastructures”, instead “how can we change the school week to better suit you and your children” – listen to what people say, and allow them to feedback via an app or webpage, they feel as if they matter, and realise the democratic process is an impactful and important one.
