mySociety is delighted to announce TICTeC2016 – or to give it its proper name, The Impacts of Civic Technology Conference 2016. The event will focus on the impact that civic technology and digital democracy are having upon citizens, decision makers and governments around the world. D-CENT partner Pablo Aragón from Eurecat will be presenting at the conference.
The international conference will discuss themes of engagement, participation, institution, social behaviour, politics, community, digital capability, communication and ethics relating to the use and study of civic technology.
The keynotes are Guy Grossman (assistant professor at the University of Pennsylvania’s political science department) and Helen Milner OBE (Chief Executive of the Tinder Foundation).
