The Civic Tech Field Guide
Sharing knowledge and productively growing the field
The Civic Tech Field Guide is a crowdsourced, global collection of civic tech tools and projects. It’s an official project of Civic Hall, a one-of-a-kind non-profit collaboration center for the world’s civic innovators.
Thousands of civic tech practitioners from over 100 countries around the world have contributed to this living resource. We catalog not only the tools, but also the social side of our field: the conferences, funders, awards, design principles and playbooks.
We include citizen engagement tech, govtech, civic data, advocacy tech, media tech, and emerging tech in our catalog of “tech for the public good.” On the social side of the field, we collect civic tech resources to help you meet the others, find a job (or hire someone), help out, build something, get funding, learn about civic tech, and evaluate impact.
It’s a free, and Creative-Commons-licensed collection curated to help you in your work. Whether you want to add your own project(s), learn from others’, or research our field, we invite you to check it out.
