Come apply your geek or creative skills to transforming your city for the better.

Join us in Lahore the weekend of Jan 24th and learn how your tech, creative, and problem solving skills can transform your city.
During the 3-day Civic Hackathon, you will learn open-source hacking for civic good, get mentored, receive input from domain experts in government, have opportunities to network, and be fed meals — all for free thanks to our sponsors.

The Lahore Civic Hackathon has completed.

The most promising prototypes received prizes to support the design and development of the open source apps. All participants will have the opportunity to become Lahore Brigade members, so they can continue civic hacking. We received 275 applications for the Lahore Civic Hackathon, and we hope to see all of you in the Lahore Brigade, even if our space constraints didn’t allow us to offer you admission for this hackathon.

We saw 15 great civic solutions! Take a look…
