Civic Innovation Labs

Join Your City's Lab If You Are A

Collaborative Process of Civic Innovation

Civic Innovation Labs meet regularly to collaborate with local stakeholders (including Government, partner Non-profit Organizations, and Media Organizations) on projects that focus on how to use 21st century web and data tools to improve civic interfaces.

How It Works

Code for Pakistan's Civic Innovation Labs are groups of volunteer community members who meet regularly to collaborate with government, non-profits, and media organizations on technology, data, policy, and design projects that strengthen their communities.

Each Lab is led by a Lab Organizer who is responsible for building the community and maintaining the relationship between the Lab and the local partners. Lab members meet at least monthly; most CILs meet with greater frequency and have a range of monthly programming. All Labs are connected through an online forum in order to share stories and support each other’s work. Labs are also closely connected to Code for America's international Brigade network.


We Work For A Better
Tomorrow

We Analyze A City's Needs

Each Lab maintains a City Profile and a Strategic Plan that provides direction to the Lab to guide its projects and programming. Each Lab also manages a list of potential projects that can improve the life of their communities.


Lab Teams Develop Best Solutions To Identified Needs

City Labs collaborate with local governments, local partners, and citizens to identify projects and action plans. Through a collaborative discussion with all stakeholders, the Lab designs the right solution.
