Madle served as an adviser to the Estonian tech savvy president Toomas Hendrik Ilves in civil society matters during his second term (2011-2016). Madle is also a member of Estonian Urban Lab, an NGO acting as a testing ground for urban innovations, where she participates in several community projects.
