  • Neglect of some communities
  • Not easy to get access to existing community groups
  • No info/data on volunteer stewardship groups and the ours they donate to the city
  • Digital divide - high vs low literacy of digital world
  • Struggle with negotiating technological determinism vs facilitating self-determinism
  • Lack of resources to enable civic entrepreneurs to bring their solutions to life
