Code for Poland Festival of Apps for Communities and Democracy

Technology as common good.

How does “civic tech” work today in Poland? Can technology improve the standards of living in cities and local communities? Do public authorities use IT tools to improve their contact with citizens and deliver high quality services? How does civic tech function in other parts of the world? Does the civic tech movement support start-ups or rather tools for public administration?

We’ll look for answers to these and other questions on April 8, 2017 together with programmers, public officials, activists and citizens interested in the social importance of technology, as well as with the participants of the Personal Democracy Forum CEE 2017 (https://www.facebook.com/events/302434313469357/?acontext=%7B%22ref%22%3A73%2C%22source%22%3A1%2C%22action_history%22%3A%22%5B%7B%5C%22surface%5C%22%3A%5C%22permalink%5C%22%2C%5C%22mechanism%5C%22%3A%5C%22surface%5C%22%2C%5C%22extra_data%5C%22%3A%5B%5D%7D%5D%22%2C%22has_source%22%3Atrue%7D&ref=73&source=1&action_history=%5B%7B%22surface%22%3A%22permalink%22%2C%22mechanism%22%3A%22surface%22%2C%22extra_data%22%3A%5B%5D%7D%5D&has_source=1)coming to Gdańsk from all over the world.
