The 2020 EaP Civil Society Hackathon is the fourth hackathon in a series of annual events. It will bring together about 60 civil society activists, tech professionals and graphic designers from six EaP countries – Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine – to Kyiv, Ukraine on 3-5 April 2020, to work face-to-face on software projects that would enable civil society better to contribute to reforms and democratic changes in their home countries. Hackathon participants will get support and advice from a multidisciplinary team of guest speakers and mentors, with proven experience in civic tech initiatives, IT start-ups and consulting companies.
2020 Regional Ideathon will help prepare the hackathon in April. The ideathon, which will be held in Chisinau on 13-14 March, is meant to ensure that those ideas which are brought to the hackathon are feasible and sufficiently developed.
