Connected Citizens Futures Game

What if we could re-program our government together in just 24 hours?

Join us on January 22 at 9am (PST)

What bugs would you fix? What would be the killer app? How would you combine citizen and government data to improve services and quality of life in your community?

You are invited to participate in Connected Citizens, a one-of-a-kind, 24-hour collaborative forecasting game produced by the Institute for the Future (IFTF).

The near future holds epic opportunities for rapid innovation in government services. New civic technologies will be built with open data, ubiquitous cloud connectivity, and real-time sensing. Connected Citizens is a global conversation about how connectedness will change the relationship between citizens and governments, and how government services will be designed and delivered in the future.

Using IFTF’s Foresight Engine, you’ll exchange ideas with hundreds of players about the technologies, dynamics, and dilemmas generated in this new world of connected citizenship. And we need your ideas—governments everywhere are struggling with increasing public demand for services in the face of austerity and resource reduction. You’ll join other innovators and creative thinkers from around the world to solve

What if together we could imagine hundreds of civic innovations to improve communities and government services?

Participation in Connected Citizens will be limited, so pre-register now at www.connected-citizens.org to be a Connected Citizens insider and receive early notice of the game's launch.
