What It’s About
Over 10,000 participants, 120 events, 103 cities, 13 countries, 22 government partners, 100 datasets, 700 innovations. An unprecedented Public-Private-People Partnership, the National Day of Civic Hacking is a national event that takes place the first weekend in June in cities around the world. The event brings together citizens, software developers, and entrepreneurs to collaboratively create, build, and invent new solutions using publicly-released data, code and technology to improve their communities and the governments that serve them. The event leverages the expertise and entrepreneurial spirit of those outside government institutions to drive meaningful, technology-based solutions for federal, state and local government. It demonstrates what’s possible when we all work together to strengthen government.
