Don't build it — that's the first piece of advice for anyone embarking on a new piece of civic tech. But if you must build it, at least take in the lessons learned from Grassroot, a technology platform from South Africa.
In a new guide, Grassroot explains the frequently overlooked challenges of building a new piece of civic tech, and provides critical advice. By sharing these lessons, the aim is to bring a constructive, critical and pragmatic lens to support the future of our sector.
TICTeC supports the mission of the non-profit mySociety by bringing together practitioners, commentators, academics and funders to debate, network, and share research and knowledge in the civic tech field.
