The change we want: How do technologies help make it happen?
The change Making All Voices Count wants is more responsive, accountable governance. The way the programme aims to contribute to this change is by supporting initiatives that use technologies, and building understanding of when the technologies help, and how. In March 2017, we are bringing together more than 30 of our grantees to share learning about the different ways that the programme is creating change.
In this fourth year of the programme, we’ve already been reflecting on the different ways that these projects use to try to contribute to more effective citizen voice and more responsive, accountable governance. At this event, we’ll be deepening our understanding, figuring out these pathways or streams, learning more about the landscape through which they pass, and exploring where they connect with each other.
Above all, we’ll be picking out what we can all learn from this journey to make our future work more effective.
We will be sharing information on what we learn here on the MAVC website and via our social media channels.
