Association was established in 2012 in Katowice. Since then, it grew and opened branch in Warsaw (in 2017). It is involved in several projects. One of them is prototyping and experimental urbanism (Livable Street, pol. Żywa Ulica). The main part of the initiative is done on the streets, however, the prototyping is preceded by detailed research. Organizers are also doing data analysis and preparing strategic plans for permanent transformation. Another project of Fix Your City Foundation is called “Gop Gear”. Activists organize races of public transportation. Through that they prepare qualitative analysis and promote public transport.
They do numerous actions on the streets and in the internet. Prototyping was done by the Foundation in many Polish cities such as Szczecin, Gorzów Wielkopolski or Biała Piska. They use civic tech in their activity. They work with many local governments, what makes them interesting for the research.
