Who are we?

CitizenLab was founded in 2015. We give cities and governments a digital participation to consult their citizens on local topics and include them in decision-making. We believe that empowering citizens can help governments make better decisions, improve trust and strengthen democracy.

We're a team of 15 people, based in Brussels. The team is a mix of developers and citizen participation experts, who are all passionate about citizen participation and innovation.
