    FOR PEOPLE WORKING ON CIVIC TECHNOLOGY, EMPOWERING CITIZENS, AND GOVERNMENT TRANSFORMATION.

  • What?

    As the civic tech world develops, and governments are transformed, citizens are empowered in new ways and influence governments like never before.

     

    This meetup is an attempt at trying to understand the relationship between the two by looking at new tech, methods and best practice emerging in civil society, campaigning and governments around the world.
