CIVIC ENGAGEMENT & PUBLIC LIBRARIES
Civic Engagement and Public Libraries (Bibliotecas para tu Acción Ciudadana) is a project of the Fundación Democracia y Desarrollo (Chile) that opens platforms of information, opinion, and discussion that address topics of public interest and specializes in projects that extensively use digital technologies. In order to promote civic engagement, this project not only works with the library, but also with the Municipality and local Civil Organizations. Their aim is to have sustainable and long-lasting actions with public policies in which the whole community is represented.
In 2017 the project is being replicated in libraries in Argentina and Uruguay.
