21st Century City: After Party
Wednesday, November 20, 2013 from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM (EST)
New York, NY
Come get your drink on after Talking Transition's "The Promise of Civic Innovation" event! We'll be talking government, civic engagement, technology, design, and more.
Civic Service is a platform to encourage interagency collaboration in local government and inspire civil servants to become intrapreneurs within their agencies. The platform works as a bridge between local government and innovators in the community by educating the public about government processes and practices, while also exposing civil servants to fresh ideas and projects from the private and non-profit sectors. Civic Service invites experts in design, innovation, social theory and public policy to help develop and deliver our programming.
Beta NYC is building a connected New York City by the people, for the people, for 21st Century. We are NYC’s civic technology and open government vanguard. BetaNYC is an organizing force for local civic engagement - we are a network of civic-minded volunteers who contribute their skills toward digital platforms for government and community service. We are a Code for America Brigade, which means we are part of an international network of volunteers who contribute our talents toward improving the way our local governments and community organizations use the web.
