Get involved with Poplus

PoplusThe open federation for sharing civic tech, Poplus, is inviting YOU to get involved.

If you’re not sure what Poplus is, or how it works, there’s a great opportunity coming up to learn more.

On Wednesday February 18th there will be a Poplus live online Hangout which everyone is welcome to watch via Google Hangouts-on-Air. The specific aim of this Hangout is to invite new people and explain just what Poplus is. There will also be the opportunity to ask questions.

Steven Clift, Poplus’ Engagement Lead, writes:

Poplus is a global federation for the next generation of civic tech. We share knowledge and technology to help our organisations help citizens.

We do this through collaborative civic coding. We share reusable open source civic technology components. We leverage open government data or make our own across many countries.

This online video-based event specially invites those new to Poplus. Everyone is welcome.

RSVP here to watch live (13:00 UTC, see your local time) on Feb 18.

The presentation includes Tom Steinberg with mySociety and a few project participants from around the world on the Hangout-on-Air “stage.” Questions will be taken via comments on the Hangout event page. The video stream is one-way, commenting two-way.
