Above you can find version 1.0 of “Technology for Social Change´s Ecosystem” in which the “Theory of change” for Civic Innovation Accelerator Fund is embeded.
In our view, one of the roadmaps to produce social change using technology can be:
- Encouraging partnerships among civic development organizations, civic movements/civil society organizations, governments and civic hackers, data journalists and technologists.
- Develop, through these alliances, civic apps tuned with social needs of disadvantaged citizens.
- Make use of civic apps (based or not on public data) to empower citizens, movements and civil society organizations to plan campaigns that aim to bring about social change.
- Develop campaigns (on and offline) that could effectively produce changes in public policies and government actions that can create the needed conditions for improving the quality of life of citizens.
