Don't miss out on the upcoming webinar today, Measuring Democracy: Exploring the Tools and Landscape of Civic Measurement, starting at 3pm Eastern, 12pm Pacific! Join National Conference on Citizenship, The Institute for Citizens and Scholars, and International Centre for Dispute Resolution to examine the top tools, resources, and research around measuring democracy.
This event is part of Civic Learning Week which seeks to further energize the movement to prioritize civic education across the nation. Learn more in the post below and register for the webinar here.
If we want to improve democracy, we need to take stock of how we’re measuring it and use those tools to help set goals and gauge progress.
The Institute for Citizens and Scholars has released Mapping Civic Measurement: How Are We Assessing Readiness and Opportunities?, the product of a partnership with the Democracy Innovation project at NCoC. The report is a first-of-its kind civic measurement landscape review and analysis of existing literature, practices, and 200+ tools in use by the broader civic field. During Civic Learning Week, join us to explore the report, dive into its findings, and hear more about important tools like NCoC’s Civic Health Index.

About Democracy Innovation
Democracy Innovation is a project of the National Conference on Citizenship. At NCoC, we work to understand, test, and disseminate innovations that can make democracy more participatory, equitable, and productive. With new and long-time partners, we are exploring ways to scale, sustain, and measure democracy. Our first major initiative in democracy innovation, the “Measuring, Growing, Embedding Civility project, will help communities sustain democracy through better engagement practices, measure the progress of these efforts through a Civility Index, and scale the emerging tools, practices, and lessons through a national network of local leaders.
