The Active Citizen project appeared in 2014. In seven years, more than five million people have joined it, of which almost two million will be in 2020. Participants decide which streets, courtyards and parks need to be improved, how city clinics, libraries, multifunctional centers should work, and also choose events for festivals and celebrations. Since the start of the project, Muscovites have taken part in more than five thousand votes. Decisions supported by a majority vote are implemented in the city.

You can find out what has appeared or changed in Moscow thanks to the voting on the online map… More than 1.6 thousand objects are applied to it. And in the heading “Pulse of the Capital”it is possible to assess the changes that have taken place in Moscow.

Since the end of last year, project participants also have the opportunity to send their accumulated points to charity. The Active Citizen project is being developed by Moscow Department of Information Technologiesand the state treasury institution “New management technologies”.
