MA work


Our personal relationship with society has changed drastically in recent history; trust in public institutions is declining, social involvement among young people is low, and disengagement and polarisation are widespread. However, the way we participate in civic society has remained the same for generations –resulting in archaic, inaccessible systems that feel out of touch with our increasingly hectic lives.

Wevo explores the future of civic participation, creating a new infrastructure for community-based volunteering. The platform facilitates the creation of local, flexible volunteering opportunities within informal community organisations. It unlocks latent manpower and taps into a significant demand for a commitment-free way to make an impact.
