Ensure public trust through citizen's involvement

To ensure public trust and make government more responsible, transparent, and collaborative, the possibilities and grounds for public engagement must be provided to increases the citizen involvement in decision making processes.

Seeking citizens' feedback by way of holding idea-centered events, local officials are increasingly seeking to move away from one-way communication with the public and are following more creative approaches with a focus on more meaningful, and open citizens' involvement.

Public engagement is particularly important in local governance since it promote the virtue of solidarity, and build social bonds in a community.
