This page lists recent and urgent requests of all kinds, for those looking to pitch in on others' projects and needs.

Welcome to Public Lab! As a network of many organizations and people across the world, we rely on the power of peer support for most of what we do. While the Public Lab staff is only around 10 people, our network reaches tens of thousands, with many different experiences and talents. So while you can always ask a question to get help, we also welcome your help in responding to requests from others.

Depending on your skillset and capacity, there are many different ways you can pitch in to support different projects across the Public Lab network. We've compiled some of the most recent and most pressing requests for help below. Take a look and get involved!


These requests are intended to be clearly documented, discrete tasks that people can help out with in a limited amount of time. See Questions below for help crafting a request like this!
