Learn from cities and councils around the world

TICTeC special

Our annual conference on the Impacts of Civic Tech, TICTeC, is a unique opportunity to hear how the sector has been making change in countries around the globe.

Videos from key presentations are now available on our YouTube channel, including these Community & Councils highlights:

  • The French Context: learn how Paris has embraced participatory budgeting and embarked on a huge citizen debate as a counter to the gilets jaunes uprising.
  • Keynote James Anderson from Bloomberg Philanthropies describes how local governments around the world are stepping up with extraordinary responses to the issues of today.
  • Civic Tech for the city context: San Antonio's FixMyStreet-style solution and measuring wellbeing as an important metric of city life.
  • Participatory budgeting and democracy: lessons from five different countries; five different contexts.

Find all resources from TICTeC, including more videos, photos and slides, here.

Northamptonsire's road back to FixMyStreet

Northants had a policy of sending FixMyStreet reports back to their authors, asking them to use the official council interface instead.

Now, due to a happy chain of events, FixMyStreet is that official council interface: here's how that happened.
