Building the Civic Tech Movement
A platform for civic technology
The civic tech movement is trying to invent the future. It’s a future where every person can make cognitive contributions to the decisions that affect them, where public services are delivered dynamically, and where collective intelligence fits in the palm of your hand.
DemocracyLab is creating an online hub for civic innovation that that will engage stakeholders by using marketplace dynamics to allocate effort, resources, and attention. The result will be an increase in participation, collaboration and transparency within the civic tech movement, and the evolution of new civic innovations capable of addressing society’s significant challenges.
We're hard at work powering towards an imminent launch. Our team of super-volunteers has been designing and developing our platform for an early 2018 release.
What's the civic tech movement?
Civic Tech is a technological approach to solving civic problems, often involving the use of government data to make governments more accountable. Civic hackers can be programmers, designers, data scientists, good communicators, civic organizers, entrepreneurs and government employees.
DemocracyLab is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our platform is being developed under the MIT open source license.
