It's back!

TICTeC, the Impacts of Civic Technology Conference, returns this summer in the UK's vibrant and historic capital city, London. Will you be there?

Coming soon: The full TICTeC 2024 schedule will go live at the end of April. We can't wait to share what's in store!

What is TICTeC?

TICTeC is a convening place for our global civic tech community.

It is a space to demonstrate, and to learn. To share research, knowledge and experience.

To make new connections, and find people who are tackling similar challenges.

At TICTeC, everyone is working in one way or another to build, research, use or fund technology that strengthens democracy, public participation, transparency, and accountability.

And we can all benefit from talking openly and honestly about the impacts of this work, and how to improve them.


Themes for 2024

Join us as we examine the overarching question for TICTeC 2024:

What is needed to make civic tech on a global scale more successful and impactful, to tackle global problems around democracy and climate change?

What is the role of civic tech in:

  • safeguarding and advancing democracy/transparency where it is under threat?
  • enabling the effective and democratic change needed to meet the challenge of climate change?

And within that theme, we’ll see strands emerge around topics like:

  • Access to Information/Freedom of Information
  • Monitoring parliaments/legislatures
  • Climate change/climate action
  • Tools for citizen participation
  • AI and Democracy
  • Civic tech as part of civil society
  • Crowdsourcing and volunteers
  • Impacts of big tech/tech giants
  • Fact checking
  • Technical infrastructure/cybersecurity

Sponsorship opportunities

TICTeC is run by UK charity mySociety, and is a not-for-profit event. We rely on sponsorship to run TICTeC events and initiatives for the public good.


London: our location for TICTeC 2024

  • mySociety is a UK-based organisation, and we’re happy to throw open the doors and welcome our friends and associates from around the civic tech world to our capital city.
  • London is an incredible international hub, accessible by all modes of public transport. Please travel sustainably to TICTeC if practical: it is really important to us, and of course to the environment. Those from Europe can use the Eurostar to arrive into London St Pancras, a mere 15 minute walk from our venue. For UK delegates, London is the most well connected city by public transport to other parts of the country.
  • If you’re staying a little longer, why not enjoy the city’s world class museums, libraries and historic sites? Fans of democracy must grab a selfie in front of the Houses of Parliament and the famous Big Ben. Take a stroll past 10 Downing Street, home of the Prime Minister, or down the Mall to Buckingham Palace, seat of the monarch.
  • Through our connections with the London & Partners agency and domestic authorities, and being a UK based organisation ourselves, we hope to provide robust visa support to TICTeC delegates.
  • We want to spend our conference budget on helping others attend rather than on our own travel to the conference location. mySociety is a charity and TICTeC is run solely by our staff members, who are all based in the UK – so holding the event in London helps us keep those costs down.

Visa help
