The team of the Center for Innovations Development (CID) wants to help the world become better through the development of e-Democracy (e-Dem), starting with successful initiation of e-petition implementation in 2014-2015, legalization of e-appeals, co-founding of effective NGO coalitions (e.g., Reanimation Package of Reforms e-Dem Coalition), development of up-to-date online citizen engagement tools and high-quality governance.
We are catalysts for e-Dem development in Ukraine, in Kyiv and other communities through the elaboration of the thematic Strategy and Action Plan for the Government of Ukraine, e-appeals, e-petitions, public budget, participatory budgeting and governance, e-consultations, integrated e-services platform, smart city, national bank of IT-solutions.
According to international assessments, Ukraine has made a vigorous growth over the past few years – it has risen to 45 positions and joined the ranks of top 32 world countries on e-participation. Today, about 2 million citizens use e-Democracy tools, including more than half a million citizens only in Kyiv.
The ‘CID’ organization starts its history from the team of the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy Department, founded in 2013.
