Action Path is a location-based civic engagement platform for Android
smartphones that prompts citizens to explore their cities and participate in
governance around infrastructure issues and planning. Existing platforms for
civic engagement, whether online or offline, are inconvenient and disconnected
from the source of issues they are meant to address. They require that citizens
leave the places they normally inhabit physically or virtually and commit to a
separate space and set of processes.

Action Path answers the challenge: How do you address barriers to effective
civic engagement in community matters, and ensure all citizens can have their
voice heard on how to improve their local communities? It does so by
converting individual actions into collective action and by providing context and
a sense of efficacy, which may help citizens become more effective through
regular practice and feedback.
