Description: 

ePaństwo Foundation - Open Data, technology, democracy and civic engagement.

ePaństwo Foundation - We are a nonpartisan, nonprofit civic tech organization supporting democracy development through promoting government transparency, accountability and citizen engagement. We work with ordinary people, activists, NGOs and public authorities by providing them with practical tools and exploring transparency issues meaningful to their work.

We would like to share some of our projects (examples below)but also give a space for our partners from the international networks we are leading: Transparencee Network - civic tech activists from CEE countries (transparencee.org). TransparenCEE – A community of NGO, IT, civic tech and media organizations that create a space for exchange of ideas and best practices and new collaborations between like-minded stakeholders across borders and sectors. We’ve already reached to over 70 civic tech organizations working on over 80 products (inc. creating and scaling tools red-flagging irregularities in public procurement) and we keep expanding this group.

and

Code for All Network - the largest organized civic tech community in the world (codeforall.org/). An international network of civic tech organizations that drive change through digital technology, citizen participation, collaborative decision-making and good governance to deliver solutions for social challenges while improving the relationship between governments and citizens. CfA enables organizations to scale by leveraging international resources, sharing expertise and promoting shared funding to tackle social issues collectively. Diversity allows for more and different approaches and solutions, while motivating alternative and modern methods for government.
