The EU’s Civic Tech 4 Democracy Showcase Event
#CivicTech4Democracy | 17 September 2018 | Thon Hotel EU
17 September 2018
from 9:30 to 19:00
Civic technology is democratic innovation at its best, as it aims to serve, by means of widely available software, the interests of the many, not the few.
The EU’s Civic Tech 4 Democracy will be held from 9:30 am to 7:00 pm at the Thon Hotel EU in the European neighbourhood in Brussels, Belgium.
Come and meet digital activists whose dynamism and creativity have had a positive impact on democracy. Join our debates on the role of social networks in electoral processes. Discover the technologies that encourage participation and evaluate with us the positive impact they can have on citizens.
