Ciudadano Inteligente is now .org! The change from .cl to .org represents the official association of our organization to the rest of Latin American, a feat that we’ve been working on for quite some time. Today, our organization boasts a multidisciplinary team from all over the world, who together work to promote transparency and citizen participation; and, to create innovative, powerful web applications, both in Chile as well as various other countries throughout the region. Some examples include Vota Inteligente – Argentina and Developing Latin America, the regional, collaborative initiative to develop civic applications.
Ciudadano Inteligente also counts on its excellent team of volunteers, who play a key role in supporting the applications, gathering information, and researching various topics. With the launching of our new website, we are officially calling on volunteers to participate in our organization, offering an opportunity to get involved in actively promoting transparency, accountability, and citizen participation. Now, students, professionals, or motivated citizens can volunteer their time and expertise in their respective areas, be it research, communications, graphic design, or web development. We will be constantly updating the open volunteering, as the registration form will be online.
As for the new graphic design, we changed our Foundation’s logo to a light bulb surrounded by many points, symbolizing the citizens who make up the Ciudadano Inteligente community. We decided it was the perfect time to adjust our image to include those who carry and inspire our Foundation to do the work it does.
In her blog post “Chao narigón, hola a todos”, Montserrat Lobos, the head of Design, tells us that “this new logo is a constant reminder to all who participate in this community to continue to strive to create more instances of participation and collaboration, to open our data, and to share information, concerns, problems and solutions”.
We’re inviting everyone, including you! Together, we are stronger!
