Code for All:
Comparative Models
Across Borders
Catherine Bracy
Director of Community Organizing
Code for America
@cbracy
2011
Code for All is an international network of people and
organizations who believe that digital technology opens
new channels for citizens to more meaningfully engage
in the public sphere and have an positive impact on
their communities.
We enlist and support the public to create digital
resources, tools and practices that result in stronger
local communities and more responsive and effective
governments.
Innovations on the Model
➔ Japan: Corporate partnership model
➔ Germany: Focus on citizen science
➔ Mexico City: Brigadistas
➔ Africa: Partnering with media organizations
Lessons
➔ Unpacking implicit American values in
Code-for model
➔ Fellowship is really high maintenance
➔ Sub groupings not necessarily by region but
by shared context
➔ Balance between strong local organizations
and a strong network
➔ We share a lot of the same challenges
Fake it ‘til you make it.
What’s Next
➔ Independent organizational structure
➔ Infrastructure to support the global civic
tech community
