The Active Citizen project was created in 2014 as a platform for electronic voting on urban development issues. An exclusive feature of the project is the guaranteed implementation of the decisions taken by Muscovites by voting.
Most of the changes in the city are taking into account the opinion of Muscovites. The voting participants determine which streets, courtyards and parks need to be improved, how city clinics, libraries, multifunctional centers should work, and also choose events for festivals and celebrations. With the help of the project, residents of the capital learn about innovations in the city and evaluate them through the section on the website and in the mobile application.
Since its launch, the project has significantly expanded its functionality and rubricator. Currently, Active Citizen combines several independent services that shape the culture of digital democracy among Moscow residents.
At the moment, the following sections are available on the website and in the application of the project: "Votes", "Public discussions of urban planning projects", "City novelties", the Shop of incentives for project participants, "Pulse of the capital", "Project in faces", an online map of solutions realised in the city following the voting results.
The Active Citizen platform was selected by the organizers of Smart City Week in the USA as an example of best practice in the area of citizen involvement in city governance. The presentation of the Active Citizen was featured on the event website for a duration of one week and was sent to all interested cities for familiarisation.
