Challenge Project

Standard Data Structure for Civic Participation

Draft specifications to frame Civic Participation data


"More and more cities are experimenting civic participation, with open or close-source softwares. The field of civic participation (participatory participation or delibatory participation) is experimented in many swiss cities like Zurich, Lausanne, Bienne, Winterthur or the state of Geneval. In the same time numerous cities and countries around the world publish data about participation: · new york: · mexico: · helsinki: · spain: · And many more (didn’t find a Swiss example).

The problem with this situation is that: little publish their results in open-data and when they do, it is hard to fill the gap between the datasets. We have so many fantastic technologies, but no one uses a well-documented data shema to export participatory data. It’s time for change"

Goal: publish through an open-source website a specification for civic participation data, with a json-ld implementation compatible with CKAN.
