LocalGov Drupal is a successful open source project looking to streamline contribution processes and community focused initiatives. We Are Open has been supporting LGD as they transition to the next phase of their project and organisation.
LocalGov Drupal seems to have both the ambition (shared codebases!) and openness (collaboration!) to really change the game when it comes to local digital services in the UK. There are currently 26 UK councils who have signed the Local Digital Declaration and are collaborating to develop a shared pool of code, resources, research and expertise.
From running user research to onboarding new community and badges for contribution to advice on decision making processes, we have been supporting LocalGov Drupal as they’ve been growing exponentially:
- Why working openly on ambitious projects breeds excitement
- An Architecture of Participation for Community growth
