Civic Makers

A volunteer-run civic tech program

What is Civic Makers?

Civic Makers is a volunteer-led program run by Code for Australia, that brings people together to say, “how can we make our communities better?” We do this through the lens of civic tech.

Essentially, we’re looking at engaging in projects involving collaboration between technologists, and anyone with some skills or an idea to solve civic problems.

Our amazing Civic Makers are building a climate change tool for local councils. Our Civic Makers are made up of people with all levels of experience who are interested in development, design, content creation, community management and so much more.

How to get involved:

  1. Jump on Code for Australia’s Slack Channel and join the #civic-makers-climatechange channel. That’s where we post about all out meetings and goings-on.
  2. Once you’re in the Slack channel, introduce yourself and we'll tell you where to go and what to read.
  3. Come to our weekly online meetings. They happen on Wednesdays at 6:30pm AEST/AEDT. The meeting link will always be provided the day of the meeting.

We're based in Melbourne, on the traditional lands of the Woiwurrung and Boon Wurrung peoples of the Kulin nation. We acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded and pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging across Australia.

As an organisation we benefit from the rich history of contributions that Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people have made to the world.
