The MuniGov2.0 organization believes that opportunities for citizen collaboration and participation will become even more abundant and integrated as technology advances and access is increasing.The following video is a simulation of a virtual Town Council meeting in the year 2031. It illustrates the ways in which local governments could enable a more effective connection between themselves and the citizens they serve, via technology. The main elements of the include virtual participation, collaborative problem solving, social media policies and online etiquette - and of course the galactic Internet.
