Designing CrowdFunding for Community Engagement – Washington D.C.Foresight/Research
Harnessing the Power of the Crowd for Municipalities
The Sharing Economy is here and it matters.
What exactly does that mean for your organization?
Recently the Reluminati was tasked by the municipal government in Washington DC to research and develop language around the concept of crowdfunding for use in municipal projects.
We ran a multi-month research project looking at a wide variety of crowd based initiatives – both on the municipal level and beyond. Based on that research, our team developed language that could be tailored to a variety of municipal initiatives for the city.
These are powerful tools in the right hands and can be mechanisms for citizens to engage with their government in meaningful ways – supporting community projects they believe in. If you are thinking through a Sharing Economy solution, put our crowd to work.
