Take a really important example: Young people, most probably like you, tend to experience issues marked by the distance and mistrust between citizenship and politics. Society and its needs both evolve at such a great speed. Today’s society is democratically mature, highly skilled, restless, and eager to take part in shaping the world around them. How to close this gap in communication between the government and society? Here’s when Smart Citizenship and Smart Governance come into play.
