g0v summit 2016 Call for Sponsorship [ENG]

g0v.tw is a civic tech community in Taiwan since 2012 with deep open-source roots.  With 1,000+ contributors through 40+ hackathons, it is recognized as one of the largest group in the global civic tech community.  The community focuses on building tools for better information disclosure, engagement, and online democracy, advocating government transparency through the power of information technology.

Through the years, the g0v community stimulated the progress of open government, open data, civic participation, and new media in Taiwan.  Today the open community is still one of the main driving force for grass root civic movements, through interdisciplinary collaboration.

About g0v summit 2016

2014 年底台灣歷經了大型公民運動的洗禮,g0v 社群首度舉辦 g0v Summit 高峰會,促成開放社群、政府、NGO、學術圈、網路界多方交流。是台灣各界摸索如何運用資訊科技與群眾參與尋找新路的一次盛會,也邀請到國際公民科技界重量級先驅來台分享。當時兩天的密集議程碰撞出許多跨界火花,也在社群持續運動中,延燒出新的協作成果。

During 2016, the time of the presidential transition in Taiwan, the g0v community wants to call for talents from different sectors and find a way to change the society through the use of technology.

Returning for a second year after 2014, the g0v Summit 2016 will again invite the global civic tech community to share their experiences for collaboration between public servants, technologists, and NGO workers.  We are pleased to have Felipe Heusser, founder and former Director of the Chilean NGO Ciudadano Inteligente and Fellow at the Berkman Center, as our keynote speaker.
