With a heavy heart, we have decided to postpone Unlock, our annual civic tech summit, until 2021. Taking into account the growing scale of the coronavirus outbreak in the region, we see this as the only right and responsible decision. The health and safety of our participants, speakers and partners is our number one priority. 

We read through all 930 applications for Unlock 2020, so if you applied, be sure that we heard you, took note of your ideas and added you to the pool of potential participants for our future events. 

At the moment, we’re working on a series of webinars based on the Unlock 2020 programme that will allow us to share the best of new civic tech, even if we can't meet in person this year. More on this soon.
