Code for Poland is an interdisciplinary community seeking technological solutions to civic challenges.
Our vision is Poland as a country with efficient public institutions being citizen-centric, companies focused on social issues operating on public data, progressive NGOs knowing how to advocate with data, with citizens involving themselves more in public matters and finally with dialogue that builds trust among all of these actors.
We believe that wise use of technology can help to achieve such state in Poland. We have divided our actions in three areas of action:
- Advocate – create dialogue with public institutions and NGOs, recommend them progressive open solutions like open data platforms and publishing procurement info, stimulate integration with various partners.
- Create – build innovative social prototypes, applications and services. Repeat successes with deployment in other cities/areas.
- Discuss – participate in discussions on our forum, on conferences. Propose new ideas, debate ones published by others.
We act in mentioned areas through the network of formally confirmed partners – mostly local NGOs and hackerspaces, but also companies and city offices.
