Connected Neighbors is a digital platform promoted by a group of civil society organizations in coordination with a significant number of Chilean municipalities. This tool allows the neighbors of a certain area to report, via georeferencing, various inconveniences in their respective municipalities, with the purpose of collaborating with local administrations in the improvement of roads, public spaces and other urban areas. In 2016, the platform recorded an approximate total of 1130 reports by neighbors of the involved zones.
