There's this community of volunteers in my country (Czechia) called Česko.Digital, trying to push digitalization and smart technological solutions, helping NGOs and government organisations (they participated on creating official Covid info portal for example). I don't know of any global community, but I would love to see and join one.

Hi Jan! Made me happy to see you engage with this post so late after I published it. I was a bit disspointed to not hear from anyone. Would you be interested in co-creating some kind of global community?

I'm mostly interested right now in software engineers that are committed to both doing work that helps the planet and the society and also to improving their communication and emotional intelligence standards and maintaining coding hygene beyond what's usually considered normal in the industry.

It sounds great, I'm not sure I have energy or qualification for trying to start this kind of project.
But on the other hand I would be interested in discussing some base thought and approaches, so I'm open for some sort of meeting/call/.. in October or later.
