Civic Tech Surgery #6

Topic: Civic Tech in Hostile Environments – how can we thrive in challenging contexts?

Date: 8 September 2022
Time: 14:00-16:00 GMT+1
Online via Zoom

Globally, the civic tech community faces challenges from working in hostile environment, from facing everyday government resistance to operating in conflict and post-conflict societies. In this surgery, we will discuss some of the common challenges and how we can support each other in solving them.

What are the challenges in different contexts and how can we support the civic tech community to carry on, collaborate and contribute productively in hostile environments? What can we learn from the use of ‘peacetech’ in conflict and post-conflict societies to tackle common challenges? What is – and isn’t – helpful in supporting civic tech and citizens in hostile environments?

This surgery aims to identify challenges/ gaps in knowledge in this area and these insights will then be used by the subsequent TICTeC Action Lab on the topic, which will work together to commission work to help tackle common challenges or address these gaps.
