About Us

The Power of the Commons

The Civic Commons is a civic engagement utility and consultancy serving community leaders, institutions and the growing desire of citizens to be engaged and empowered on key civic decisions. The Civic Commons is an online environment combining the best and most effective aspects of social networking and social media. 

We like to think of the Civic Commons as social media for stuff that matters - a place where people are sharing perspectives and working towards common solutions. 

Join the passionate Civic Commons community, whose contributions are grounded in our founding principles. A number of community partners share our commitment to those principles.
