Author | Marcos MartínezThe urban government concept has changed in recent decades, and technology has played an important part in terms of connecting citizens with the different city councils. Today, cities around the world are promoting citizen participation and part of their budget is being managed based on policies put forward by residents themselves.Madrid, recognised by the UN for its Decide Madrid (Madrid Decides) participation portal, is one of those cities.
