What happens when makers take their ingenuity to the public square? Makers across the country are coming together with tools, skills, and time to collaborate toward building a better city for the future – a maker city!
For the second year in a row, the Institute for the Future (IFTF) is partnering with the National Day of Civic Hacking to help citizens make the future of their communities, states, and nation.
Join citizens from around the country—online and in-person—to ideate, play, and prototype the future of your city.
Add an idea. If you have a great idea about how civic hacking can make your city a better place, add your idea to the game, and share it on Facebook or Twitter to get feedback and collaboration from others.
Bring the game to your event. If you’re hosting a hackathon, freespace, or block party, enter your collected ideas into the game; have a discussion about the power of civic hacking to improve your city, and share the results in the game!
Reflect on NDCH. Finally, after National Day of Civic Hacking, share your thoughts and learnings on the platform: what new ideas emerged from your gathering? Use the opportunity to express your thoughts on networking the data sets to create something larger. Share your thoughts on what National Day of Civic Hacking might look like if it were held in 2024?
