Strong local and regional communities are essential to building practical open technology for development. Because of that, today we’re happy to share with you that we have partnered with the Fundación Ciudadano Inteligente (Smart Citizen Foundation) to support these efforts in Latin America.
The Developing Latin America event will bring together developers, designers, and members of civil society from 6 Latin American countries to find innovative technological solutions for the social good of their country and region. All 6 event locations will participate in the upcoming RHoK Global December 2011 event where they will have an opportunity to collaborate with peers around the world.
Based in Santiago, Chile, the mission of the Fundación Ciudadano Inteligente (Smart Citizen Foundation) is to promote transparency. It encourages active citizen participation through information and communication technologies. FCI networks with organizations that work in themes of transparency, technology, and social good throughout Latin America.
We look forward to working with FCI, their partners, and the entire Latin American community on these events and beyond. If you have ideas about how RHoK can help your region, or would like to help out, please email us at email@example.com.
