Describe the problem that you want to address. How does this problem effect people in their daily lives?

People are not participating in designing policies affecting them especially at local level. In particular, the voices of women and young people who are exculded in many countries especially Middle east countries. The app would provide interactive app and website to facilitate that participation process.

Describe your proposed solution – How does your approach build on or add to more traditional ways of dealing with problem?

Equipped with advanced interactive and participation functions, including forums, polls, calendar of events and geospatial information systems, wikis; the App enables citizens to directly define the content, shape and direction of municipal policies. By combining service provision functions and facilities for voluntary, community and business organizations The app greatly enhances social capital in local communities and strengthens knowledge and civic commitment, allthrough a single web-based geographical interface.

Which technologies are you planning to use and why? Please make reference to other similar uses of your proposed technology.

The app is tested in some areas by a partner organization Gov2u as a website. It worth making use of the experience to develop the website into app and start testing it in Middle eastern countries as well.
