About Civis

At Civis we have developed a platform that enables citizens engagement, in our democracies, by creating a channel for constructive dialogue between citizens and the Government on draft laws and policies.

Through Civis, individuals in India can understand an upcoming law or policy and share their feedback on this law, this feedback goes straight to lawmakers. This crucial step of consultation allows for participatory design of policies, increased trust and dialogue.

At Civis we work across two verticals:
– On national level policies, through our website www.civis.vote.
– At the grassroots with urban local bodies, and non-profit partners.

As a Consultatio Fellow, you will be involved with both these verticals.

On our online platform (www.civis.vote), we:

? Aggregate all open laws seeking feedback.?
? Simplify these laws in easy to understand language.?
? Translate them into local languages.?
? Reach out to individuals and gather inputs on these laws.?
? Analyse and share citizen’s feedback with the Government – building Government capacity to run effective Consultations, and gather actionable insights.

Civis is built and maintained by Civic Innovation Foundation, a non-profit organisation.
