WeSolve the Citizen Engagement
Improving citizen engagement in sustainable urban design

About this process
This process belongs to Citizen engagement projects
The WeSolve project will use digital technology to engage with residents in two cities on urban design changes that promote more sustainable mobility habits.
WeSolve is a digital engagement platform that connects residents in Logroño, Spain, and Jelgava, Latvia, with their local governments to co-create at least five solutions that address a specific mobility challenge, as well as promote environmentally sustainable mobility. A key goal of the project is to stimulate more dialogue between governments and citizens and encourage active participation of citizens to create solutions to issues that directly affect them.
Cities will use the WeSolve platform to test gamification and reward features that nurture long-term engagement with participants. Care is taken to include a diverse range of communities and users.
The platform’s functionality and approach to co-creating solutions will undergo an iterative process and be documented in a final implementation guide.
