As of July 1, 2017, ownership of ParticipateDB has been transferred from Intellitics, Inc. to the newly-created Center for Applied Community Engagement, LLC.

Announcing the Center for Applied Community Engagement (CACE)

In terms of day-to-day operations, nothing will change in the short term. ParticipateDB remains open for anyone to contribute and grow and improve the Creative Commons-licensed content.

Starting later this year or early next year, there should be noticeable improvements in terms of content maintenance and site infrastructure.

Thank you for your support over the past few years. We look forward to the next stage of development for ParticipateDB!

Upcoming Data Collection Project

by Tim on September 15, 2016

It’s International Day of Democracy today (and also ParticipateDB’s seventh birthday), and we wanted to give everyone a quick heads-up about a very exciting project we have in the works for later this fall.

In an effort to further broaden and deepen our coverage of the digital engagement field, we are organizing a survey of sorts that will invite community engagement practitioners from around the world to answer essentially two simple questions:

  1. Which digital engagement tools and services have you used in your work recently?
  2. What were your lessons learned?

We are lining up a great group of international partners to help with outreach. Should be super fun!

Stay tuned for updates. Best to subscribe to our newsletter, or follow us on the social web.

If your in the Bay Area, come join us for drinks tonight in San José. See you there!

As is sometimes the case with side projects, fixing it took a little longer. As of earlier today, the ParticipateDB blog is back for good. We got some […]
