What can I do with the Field Guide?

Browse the wide world of civic tech and tech for public interest. You can browse by tech platform, career and funding opportunities, or specific social issues. Explore the world map to find projects in your area. Check out our exclusive research on the growth of the field, patterns of failure, and impact measurement.

Add your project to the collection
We try to create listings at the project level. So if your organization makes three different things, we’ll make a page for each so people can find exactly what they’re looking for.

Claim your project(s)
If your project is already in the Guide, you can claim your listing(s). This will put us in touch so we can make sure the listing accurately represents your project(s).

Curate a category
As you’ll see on the Guide homepage, we have hundreds of subcategories of civic tech. Are you an expert on participatory budgeting? Do you know all about the various SMS advocacy tools on the market? We’ll promote you as the curator of a section in exchange for you sharing new links when you see them. Just drop us a note at info @ civictech.guide.
