As the year winds down, we’re cracking open the SCB archives for some of our unpublished gems. Today’s great conversation was recorded at SHA 2017.. better known as hacker camp. My guest is a legendary voice in the field of technology and civic engagement. Once involved with the legendary Digital City project in Amsterdam, her work and her presentation at camp were focused on the new era for empowering citizens within cities to keep and control their personal data.. deciding if and how they use it for a greater good. That guest is president and co-founder of the Waag Society— Marleen Stikker.

Over the past year a movement of coders, artists, journalists and concerned citizens have joined together in a way that could change the long disfunctional relationship between citizens and government or citizens and societal issues. What they’re doing is called Civic Tech, and while the term itself is new, the area is growing quickly and making a difference in communities around the world. To better explain it we have two very special guests from the Code For Germany project.. Fiona Krakenbürger and Julia Kloiber.
Also on today’s program a special announcement, the call for papers for our Enthusiastic Con taking place from June 19th to the 21st at Wikimedia Deutschland in Berlin.
