Unlocking the potential of open government requires a diverse group of actors—from citizens, government, civil society, and the private sector—to work together toward a common vision. But collaboration towards the shared ideals of transparency, participation, accountability, and innovation is complex, challenging work.
Grounded in years of work with open government initiatives, from design to implementation to evaluation, Reboot serves as a bridge between governments and communities, connecting and aligning people to create shared solutions.
We empower citizens to participate meaningfully in government, working shoulder-to-shoulder with civil society organizations and media actors to build knowledge and capacity.
We also support governments—at the national, state, and city level—to deliver politically-aware initiatives that build on a realistic understanding of capacities and resources, and correspond to citizen interests and needs.
