Hello, you are invited to get involved with Poplus.org. Here are two timely opportunities:
Poplus live online Hangout - Watch via Google Hangouts-on-Air on Wednesday, February 18 and/or ...
Poplus online group - Join in the 350+ member, 60+ nation collaboration
Poplus is a global federation for the next generation of civic tech. We share knowledge and technology to help our organisations help citizens. We do this through collaborative civic coding. We share reusable open source civic technology components. We leverage open government data or make our own across many countries.
RSVP here to watch live (13:00 UTC, see your local time) on Feb 18. The presentation includes Tom Steinberg with mySociety and a few project participants from around the world on the Hangout-on-Air “stage.” Questions will be taken via comments on the Hangout event page. The video stream is one-way, commenting two-way.
Founded by CiudadnoInteligente.org based in Chile and mySociety.org based in the UK, the international civic tech federation was launched at the first PoplusCon in April 2014. Watch this short video to see civic tech collaboration in action! Visit Poplus.org (en español) for full details.
