Civic Crowdfunding – A Proposal
Written in collaboration with Architect Alessio Barollo, this report comments on the state of civic crowdfunding in Europe and in the US, giving an overview on the biggest platforms and the most interesting projects. Note this report was published in 2013) The report also proposes a form of active citizenship through a new model of civic crowdfunding for Italy, which could be replicated elsewhere. It is a process that could resolve the shortage of capital at the local government level, and could also serve to bring people closer to those institutions, increasing respect for the public good and implementing a model of active citizenship and participatory innovation.
The report has been published in Italian in March 2013 and it is now available in English, thanks to the translation kindly provided by Web-Translations.
