The use of social and civic innovation makes it possible to have an open exchange of ideas. It also helps members and stakeholders to solve specific challenges related to the closing of civic spaces through the use, and surfacing, of local knowledge and solutions to solve these challenges.

Civic innovation as an approach encourages convergence points between differing perspectives, and different backgrounds. Often bringing in diverse perspectives from legal work, advocacy, journalism, civic technology, gender and governance only yields very high level points of agreement. This helps us to arrive at new ways of meeting long-standing social needs.

We believe that in complex situations, emergent solutions are arrived at through collective interaction of diverse local and regional voices – these solutions are more likely to succeed than transplanted solutions. By creating safe spaces, and creative interaction between the participants, both virtually and in-person events, the likelihood of new ideas to emerge. If the right people, information and resources are available, these innovations can form roots and start to positively impact their local context.
