TICTeC Local Manchester
My Society is delighted to be hosting the first TICTeC Local conference in Manchester on 6th November 2018.
TICTeC Local is a spinoff from our global The Impacts of Civic Technology Conference, which is now in its fifth successful year.
This event will narrow the lens, focusing on where and how civic tech connects with and impacts Local Government, rather than the international focus we have with our global TICTeC events.
The aim is to examine what works and why, the challenges and ethical decisions involved in using civic tech and how these initiatives can be replicated by local authorities around the UK.
Attendees will hear from many local authorities and civic tech practitioners in the UK and further afield who are leading the way on using technology to improve civic participation, streamline citizen interaction with public bodies, and create efficiencies in civic budgets.
If you work in or around the local authority or local public institution space, and have an interest in using digital tools, then this event may be very worthwhile.
You will leave inspired by some of our showcased projects, you’ll have a better understanding of the most effective digital tools, and you’ll have met interesting people who are on a similar journey, or who might be able to help you in developing your digital capacity in the future.
My Society will be announcing speakers and contributors over the next couple of weeks.
