We face emergencies with civic hacking, crowdsourcing and transforming data into collective knowledge with open source software and tools to aid the population.

emergenzeHack is a non-profit, inclusive collective of italian civic activists formed in 2016, when the Central Italy earthquake affected millions of lives: we created TerremotoCentroItalia, a crowdsourcing platform to match the needs of the population and the available offers, while keeping people updated.
In 2020, we replicated this effort with Covid19Italia Help. The initiative hit the news and similar efforts were started in Greece and Portugal.

From psycological support services to local initiatives offering delivery of primary needs and medications, we geolocalise, crowd-verify and publish these informations on our platform, before re-distributing everything as open data.
We are volunteers with very varied backgrounds: developers, hackers, journalists, social media managers, editors and much more.


We provide tools and workflows to:


Gather, crowd-verify, label and geolocalise data coming from forms, bots and other sources.


Expose freely the resulting enriched datasets to the community, aiding similar projects.


Present, geolocalise and deliver information to interested targets using story telling, socials and communication tools.
