Show Notes
How can technology help citizens meaningfully contribute to government? Discussing ‘civic technologies’ with Alvaro Maz (Co-founder and Managing Director) and Adam Murray (Head of Experiments) from Code for Academy, we get an insider view into this tech company’s approach to meaningfully engage the public, how to turn Hackathons into something tangible, and the value of open source technology. (We find out what open source means too.) Our host Caitlyn was also really excited to hear tips for innovating within large organisations, earning support, and creating the conditions for those ‘aha!’ moments. Listen in!
