Event Details

Calling all civic-minded geeks! Think your city could be better?

Be it Peshawar or Karachi, we have civic problems! Do you have ideas about how to fix things? Do you like working with other intelligent people? Have skills like web or mobile development or design? Want to innovate on top of government information and services? Come apply your geek or creative skills to transforming your city for the better.

We need to start thinking differently about public service and the institution of government if we want to make a change. Around the world, civic hackers are building open source solutions that enable city governments to be more open, efficient, and in tune with the needs of citizens. We need innovation in public services.

The Peshawar Civic Hackathon will follow closely on the heels of Pakistan’s first Civic Hackathon to bring together programmers, designers, urban mappers, data analysts, community organizers, and government information to reboot local services using web and mobile technology. Imagine a peace corps of geeks for civic betterment.

Join us in Peshawar for the weekend and learn how your tech, creative, and problem solving skills can transform your city.

During the 2-day Civic Hackathon, you will learn rapid skills via workshops, get mentored, receive input from domain experts in government, have opportunities to network, and be fed meals -- all for free thanks to our sponsors. We also have overnight accommodation for those of you coming from other cities. All you need to do is bring your brain, skills, and enthusiasm and create solutions together.
