Hack for Change: A Civic Design-a-thon is an empowering and interactive partnering between civic tech hackers and their community to address Charlotte’s challenges through design thinking techniques. From September 28-29th, we’ll be exploring challenges, obstacles and how we get everyone in the room work together.
Unlike a normal hackathon, we won’t even discuss building solutions during the two days. The focus is to explore the challenge, identify the obstacles, discover the stakeholders and develop a plan. We strongly believe in building with a community, not for them. Therefore, we want to include input and participation from residents, service users, resource providers, government partners and more before building a solution.
