Do you have an idea for an app to enhance our electoral process, to help citizens engage in their communities, or to help facilitate online activism? Here’s a unique opportunity for it to be built in a weekend by some of the world’s top civic developers.
In connection with the 2012 “Personal Democracy Forum” conference, we are bringing leading civic “hackers” together with practitioners in government and NGOs to build tools that enhance civic life through technology-driven innovation. Participants will work to build applications that address specific civic needs in keeping with this year’s “Internet is the New Political Power” PDF conference theme.
Date: Saturday, June 9 10am - Sunday, June 10 5:30pm
Location: CUNY Graduate School of Journalism - 230 West 41st Street), Third Floor
Ideas for projects are being solicited and you can suggest or vote for them below.
If you would like to participate in PDF: Applied, please RSVP at http://pdfapplied.eventbrite.com/.
