CIVIC TECH EXCHANGE
We invite Hacktivists, Social innovators and Civic-Tech experts to our amazing event in Belarus.
In Belarus and Germany there are a couple of actors working in the field of Civic Tech. So Falanster.by, Wechange.eco and the Map.vonmorgen.org-Teams decided to bring those actors from East and West together to learn from each other, to get to know other cultures and ways to look at a topic and of course jointly programe together.
During this one week, we will jointly set up a belarussian version of the Map.vonmorgen.org and take care about the API to connect Kartevonmorgen with Wechange, Wikidata, Wikipedia and OpenStreetMap. Main goal here is to provide a first step to a non-monopolised internet infrastructure for Civil Society. Clear goal of the project is an advanced training in the field of Civic-Tech. This means that we will provide seminars and workshops on how to work as civil society actors in the field of Civic Tech.

Project is funded by the German Federal Foreign Office
For this project we get funded by the Federal Foreign office. With the project they want to support exchange between Civil society actors from East and West. The focus here is on training and further training projects (capacity-building). Everyone, particularly young people, fundamentally needs to have prospects for their own economic, societal and social progress and to be able to see chances for themselves and their environment to develop and thrive. The motivation for all societal, political and social engagement for one’s own country stems from this. Training and further training are the foundations on which all people build their personal dreams and prospects for the future. Academic, professional and socio-political training and further training measures, including via the awarding of scholarships, are thus eligible for funding. The target group is primarily, but not exclusively, young people.
