Top Tips For Civic Innovation

Identify champions

It can really help you to engage with a decision maker if you can identify and build a relationship with a 'champion'.

Gather Evidence

Increasingly, if an individual or group wants to engage with and influence decision making, it is essential to have the information and evidence to back up its case.

Build numbers – if you have to!

You don’t have to involve everyone in every issue all the time. But for some issues, building a critical mass and getting as many people engaged as possible is essential.
