Civic Tech Surgery #4

Topic: Storytelling and reach: how can we amplify our successes beyond the civic tech community to evidence our impact through mainstream channels?

Date: 12 May 2022

At this Civic Tech Surgery, the discussion was around the challenges of amplifying civic tech projects and their successes through mainstream channels, as well as their solutions and ideas to tackle these. The panel comprised Daniel Carranza of DATA Uruguay, Attila Juhász from K-Monitor in Hungary, Amy Leach of the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data and mySociety’s Communications Manager Myfanwy Nixon.

Action Lab #4: taking ideas forward

Following this Surgery, we are convening an Action Lab (aka working group), who will work together to commission a piece of work to help solve common challenges raised by Surgery attendees. Funding is available for this commissioned piece of work, which aims to help as many civic tech organisations around the world as possible. Applications to join this Action Lab are now open: see more information here.

You will be able to follow the Action Lab’s progress over on the Lab’s web page.
