What’s wrong with this ‘Citizen-Generation’ app?
A “citizen-generation” app that aims to give citizens a voice through technology is being launched in India, the world’s largest democracy.
A pilot app has been developed for people under 25 and under 25s by the tech company AppVeyor, which is also working on apps for people over 65 and people over 150.
A version for young adults has also been launched by the app.
It has been designed to help people in areas like healthcare and the environment and is not a replacement for traditional media.
The aim is to create a digital platform that can empower citizens to be active in their communities and have their voice heard.
“This platform will give a voice to the youth, a voice they might not have in the real world,” said Amit Khandekar, the CEO of AppVyor.
The app was developed by AppVeeor and the app has received a big boost from the government and the telecom operators to help it reach more people.
“We are proud to have this app in the pilot stage and are excited to work with governments, telcos and technology companies to launch it in more places,” said Khandeks.
The platform, which has a range of features, has been launched in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh and will be rolled out to more states.
The government has made it compulsory for anyone under 25 to have a smartphone for free and a free app for children.
