The Good Practice Exchange at the Wales Audit Office has published an interview with Gunnar Grímsson of the Citizens Foundation in Reykjavik about Better Reykjavik. Here’s a link to the article:

A Better Reykjavik and a stronger community: The benefits of crowdsourcing and e-democracy

The project has been quite successful: well over half the city population has participated, over 3,300 ideas were submitted by users, and 165 of these ideas have been formally accepted.

Here’s a link to the Better Reykjavik website.

Thanks to GovLab.
