*WHAT IS IT?*
The Public Good App House Festival
<http://po.st/publicgoodapphousefestivalE> will bring together over 300
participants to learn how public good technology projects are positively
impacting our communities and our world.
Held over three days and, in festival style, in eight locations, this
Washington, D.C. event will provide opportunities for technologists,
community activists, professionals from nonprofit organizations and
foundations, and interested community members to connect with one another.
They will engage in sessions on participatory development methodologies,
learn about active projects in the Americas, and discuss ways to measure
and describe collective impact across similar and related technologies that
originate across regions.
Attendees will have a chance to learn about innovative social good
technologies, how teams are using participatory methodologies, and how we
are all measuring impact and systemic change. This global festival will
highlight projects focused on the United Nation’s 2030 Sustainable
Development Goals with a special focus on projects from the Americas.
*WHO IS SPEAKING?*
We have recruited speakers from a range of countries and viewpoints.
Our 45+ presenters <http://po.st/publicgoodapphousefestivalE> include:
- The executive director of a Colombian NGO who will discuss a project
focusing on the collection and analysis of air quality data with the
engagement of citizens.
- Social workers from Brazil who will share a project using citizen
researchers to validate published government data
- The co-founder of the U.S.-based Climate Cost Project who will share
its work in visualizing climate-related data.
*WHO IS ATTENDING?*
The festival will bring together 300 individuals committed to building
public good technology projects. People at the festival will include
nonprofit professionals, individuals representing government agencies,
foundation staff, application developers, and technology companies. Based
on our experience running the successful #Apps4Change demo series
<http://po.st/pgahdemos>, we expect half of the attendees to be from
nonprofit organizations and academic institutions.
*WHAT IS PUBLIC GOOD TECHNOLOGY?*
Public good technologies are designed to help solve problems related to
social good. They are issue-facing, citizen-owned, and impact-creating
projects. The technology may include mobile apps, browser-based tools, and
devices related to the internet of things. While public good technologies
can be built by anyone with interest and passion, they often rely on
nonprofit organizations for reach and use in a community.
