The SVOI Platform is a modern service that allows communities to create high-quality websites and connect residents to the SVOI chatbot. The platform’s content builder contains all the tools of electronic democracy, from local petitions to the public budget.
The EGAP Program connected the Kherson City Council to the SVOI Platform in the second half of 2021. We were jointly planning to create a convenient and functional website to improve interaction of residents with local authorities even more.
Russian soldiers entered the territory of the oblast on February 24, on the first day of the full-scale invasion, and they occupied the city of Kherson itself in early March.
Having resisted the occupation regime for eight months, our compatriots are in touch with us again after the November 11 liberation of the right-bank portion of the oblast. So now we can say with inspiration: cooperation with the city of Kherson has been restored!
To connect to the platform, communities need to fill out a form at the link: https://toolkit.in.ua.
In 2022, 120 communities joined the SVOI Platform. And the chatbot has over 42,000 users!
The SVOY platform was created within the framework of the Swiss-Ukrainian EGAP Program, which is being implemented by the Eastern Europe Foundation in partnership with the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine.
