Welcome to
Civic Exchange

We’re here to find and share the technology that can help you deliver better public services.


One council's web app helping people nationwide to love clean streets - but it all started with getting staff on board.

How a web app all about sharing is getting neighbours talking as well as saving on a council's landfill bill.

Meet the teams using tech to solve problems in cities and towns around the world - will they be in your neighbourhood next?
