Civic Tech 10 years history
In this session, we will look back at 10 years of Civic Tech history. At this year's Code for America Summit, Ms. Jennifer Pahlka, who is former executive director of Code for America, gave a speech about the beginning of Civic Tech. Code for Japan will also present the history of Civic Tech ten years after its birth, based on articles written by Shirakawa of Niigata University.
On the day of the summit, we are planning to set up live viewing of the summit at venues in Niigata Prefecture and broadcast it.
