For a few years, the citizens' trust in their politicians is declining while more people want to be involved in the political life. As an answer to this request, a few tools offering a participative democracy were created, yet, these are little used. Few people consider themselves legitimate to take part in political choices.

Thus, we believe that the answer to a more active democracy goes through a playful civic learning from an early age : promoting the collective strength, stimulating debate and encourage speaking out. To help achieving this, Citivox was thought as an interactive tool designed for civic education classe and directly inspired by roleplays. By using a digital tool and physical game during class, it immerses middle school students in a fictional city that they will develop by solving challenges and debating. The teacher becomes the mediator, respecting the principles of flipped pedagogy.
