Browse and share info about City of Helsinki decisions via Android app
The #HelsinkiPäätökset app aims to deliver a comprehensive way to browse and share the decisions made by the City of Helsinki. Users are able to view meetings, meeting items (decisions) and view video from meetings (in progress). To interact with the decisions we give the users an option to view the decision online, to tweet about the issue (using a URL shortener and #HelsinkiPäätökset) or to share it via other apps. Our goal was to increase the transparency of the decision making by making it easier to view the decisions. Also we hope to have more discussion among city residents about the decisions in social media (even if people do not use the app).

The decisions are queried from the Helsinki City API OpenAHJO. The #HelsinkiPäätökset project is open source with the code hosted on github. Part of the work has been funded by the Helsinki City Executive Office.
