Civic Innovation Programme opens 16 December 2019

Civic Innovation Programme encourages greater public influence (via Community Foundation NI)


The Civic Innovation programme will support projects that can deliver greater public influence over key societal issues as well as demonstrating how a more participative and deliberative model of democracy can build a better Northern Ireland for everyone.

The programme will formally commence at the Community Foundation’s Democracy Day event on 29th January 2020, delivered in partnership with the Imagine Belfast Festival.

At this event participants will have an opportunity to ‘pitch’ their ideas for projects to one another, as well as get some inspiration from international and local contributors working in the fields of public participation and democratic innovation. However you can attend our information workshops to learn more and get the ball rolling on your project idea.
