Political polarisation, fake news and civil unrest
Citizens across many countries share similar concerns: can we believe the news we read? Why are we so politically divided? Will we ever find common ground again?
These are shaping up to be some of the dominant themes of TICTeC, our conference on the Impacts of Civic Technology.
Of course, Civic Tech hasn't got all the answers, but it might have some: come to TICTeC and hear how automated fact-checking, machine learning, citizen councils, research and activism are tackling today's ills from many fronts. See the full schedule here.
