Meu Rio

Apps to mobilize citizens to engage with their city governments


There is often a disconnect between Brazilian policymakers and the citizens they represent.


With a ~$500,000 grant, Meu Rio is expanding a set of apps that engage the urban population in Brazil to participate in the formulation and implementation of local policies.


Over five years, Meu Rio will provide new tools for 3.6 million people in 20 cities, directly influencing the development and implementation of 3000 public policies.
