Civic initiatives aim to create impact, often beyond the initial (design) activity or process. HCI practice and research has turned toward exploring methods, technologies, processes, to work toward lasting initiatives that can continue effectively beyond the project or grant timeline. Nonetheless, there is a growing need to create a forum where researchers and practitioners can share their approaches so as to shed light on opportunities and challenges of supporting lasting civic initiatives moving forward. This workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in how to make civic initiatives have lasting impact: either by supporting and sustaining such initiatives or by focusing on how their outcomes increase people’s capacity to act on their ideas and wishes.
