Worum es bei uns geht
## What is Civic & Political Tech Berlin?
Tech is rapidly changing the way political debate, interaction with government, access to services and social change happens.
Our group seeks to leverage technology, design, and data to empower citizens for social good. Micah Sifry has helpfully defined Civic Tech (http://techpresident.com/news/25261/civic-tech-and-engagement-search-common-language) as: ‘any tool or process that people as individuals or groups may use to affect the public arena, be it to gain power, influence power, disrupt power or change the processes by which power is used’.
## Who is this group for?
This group is ideal for social entrepreneurs, campaigners, people working in political change, nonprofits, government, researchers or anyone else interested in the topic!
