→ What are the Communities of Practice?
If you are new to the Communities of Practice (CoPs) concept, here’s a quick-to-the-point summary:
CoPs are about bringing network members, and organizations beyond the network, together to form groups and discuss common topics relevant to the civic tech ecosystem. This is an opportunity for network members to connect with not only each other, but with other organizations working on similar topics, such as practitioners, grassroots organizations, government champions, and academics that provide expertise to civic tech projects. Read more about the CoPs here.
The topics that are currently being focused on in our CoPs include:
- Digital Citizen Engagement
- Good Governance
