CivicMarathon #2

From Civic Innovation School we launched the second Civic Marathon, it will be a marathon of 15 days to discover and map people and projects focused on Civic Innovation: they can be people, groups, spaces, actions, strategies, projects and research.

Join us with the Civic Marathon!

Tell us about one or more Projects and People!

Fill the Form!

Two years ago we dared to launch the first Civic Marathon. It was a campaign to learn about new projects of Civic Innovation that ended with a live streaming that lasted more than 4 hours with participants from different countries in Europe and Latin America. In the streaming we were continuously changing the language depending on the person presenting your project.

Two years later we want to repeat this campaign again. It will also be the opportunity to present the Civic Innovation School, the next edition of the Civic Design course and the crowdfunding of the Civic Design Book.

We will close the campaign with a streaming session scheduled for Thursday 9th August at 6pm (GMT+2).

How can you participate?
