Hackney Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

Since the technology is everywhere and we use it in every part of our lives. The idea here is to build a community of technocrats, Software developers, IT Professionals and people who are interested in technology to give back to our communities. working on social, environmental and civic projects. Try to find solutions or make life easy for people who work in these areas. The idea here is NOT to provide solutions which we think is right as technocrats, but to work WITH the people on the ground, who works in these areas day in/day out and help them find solutions of their issues using technologies. If you are a technocrat or software developer or working in social, environmental or civic sector and have ideas which we can help you with please feel free to contact us.

What we'll deliver:

  • run regular hackathon to come up with ideas to help communities using technology
  • based on ideas collected in hackathon build new tools to help community.
  • popularise the tools so that citizens can get benefit out of using the tool.

Why it's a great idea:

It is a great idea because smartphones are everywhere and everybody knows how to use them. There are websites which are useful to people but nobody knows about them, or people don't use them as often. with this project, we are trying to build a civic app platform which will host lot of civic applications at one place, so that citizens will have one stop shop for all their civic apps. app like find/contact my mp/Councillor etc.
