This summer has become a time for reflection, self-critique and reassessment by the entire civic tech movement. In the past several months, many people who have been central to this work since the beginning have been sharing observations and thoughts on how civic tech must evolve to fulfill its enormous potential. We’ve been reflecting on this as well, and facilitating a process with the community to get clearer on what’s working, what’s not, and what to do about it. Join us for a participatory design exercise that will be open to anyone who is involved in or cares about the larger civic tech community.
