#GetTheMayor is a collaborative pro-bono project for the City of Heidelberg. It helps re-think how city governments are run and explores innovative ways on how to put citizens into the centre of a city’s decision-making process. The website leverages crowdsourcing, social media and technology to offer citizens a platform to get involved and engage with their local government in a way they never have before. With the help of this platform they can bring projects and issues that they are passionate about, or think should be focused on, in front of their mayor – so together they can create and collaborate for a better city.
