Hi friends! We are Civinomics. Our main vision at Civinomics is to create a paradigm shift in civic engagement. How are we trying to do this? Well, we offer a platform where citizens can collaborate on local issues that are important to them in an crowdsourced environment. We believe that information is power and by creating a transparent policy creation process, we can diffuse the power of large institutions and give more power back to individual citizens.

Our first major project to showcase the importance of the citizen ripple effect (small changes, big impacts) is by putting on Civinomicon. Civinomicon is going to be a free three-day "civic hackathon"  where the public can collaborate on how to address issues in the Santa Cruz County such as:

  • Public Safety
  • Water Use
  • Homelessness
  • Sustainability
  • Transportation
  • Local Economy
  • Housing
  • Arts

Civinomicon is not just an event for Santa Cruz County citizens. It's an event for anyone who is interested in a government system change. This nation was birthed with the thought that government should be of the people, by the people, for the people, and we're just trying to keep it that way.

Help us give the power back to the citizens.


Flyers/Advertising: $500

We need the marketing funds to reach a diverse demographic. We don't want to limit the reach of this event to the internet.

Snacks and drinks: $2000

People tend to think better when they're stomachs are full.

Building deposit & fees: $1500 

Cleaning fees and deposits are mandatory as we will be occupying a large space with a large number of people.

SWAG: $1000 

To make the event memorable, and since it's our first ever Civinomicon, we want attendees to leave the event with something that will remind them of how AWESOME Civinomicon was. 

Computer rentals: $750  

The whole point of this is to promote transparency and broaden participation. We're aiming to get the most amount of people involved on a given issue. We're setting up a computer lab so people can post resources, ideas, and initiatives as they come up with them so others who weren't at Civinomicon can engage.

Staging/Audio: $500  

We're going to have some great speakers come in to Civinomicon, and in order for them to be seen & heard, we're going to need a somewhat decent stage.
