Embassy was established in 2013 in Nowy Sącz, although it hadn’t been formally registered until 2019. Activists are focusing on social participation with use of technologies. In 2019, they organized social hackathon for the group of adolescents, which aimed at finding solutions for pressing problems in the city of Nowy Sącz. As one of possible ways to organize hackathon and similar initiatives, activists present collaboration with local government. They also do a project called “UX Embassy” which is aimed at establishing collaboration between UX Design experts with NGOs.
It is interesting as this Foundation is based on the intersection of three different axes: education, participation, and civic tech. In collaboration with local government, association promotes civic tech around adolescents. They also introduce civic tech to local governments.
