What is CityCamp?
CityCamp is an unconference focused on innovation for municipal governments and community organizations. As an unconference, content for CityCamp is not programmed for a passive audience. Instead, content is created and organized by participants and coordinated by facilitators. Participants are expected to play active roles in sessions. This provides an excellent format for creative, open exchange geared toward action.
Each City Camp has four main goals:
- Bring together local government officials, municipal employees, experts, programmers, designers, citizens and journalists to share perspectives and insights about the cities in which they live
- Create and maintain patterns for using the Web to facilitate local government transparency and effective local governance
- Foster communities of practice and advocacy on the role of the Web, mobile communication, online information, and open data in cities
- Create outcomes that participants will act upon after the event is over
Through engaging, interactive and thought- provoking activities, CityCamp Yeg will explore and documents ideas, lessons learned, best practices, and patterns that can be implemented within and shared across municipalities.
CityCamp recognizes that local governments and community organizations have the most direct influence and impact on our daily lives. This event seeks to create local communities of practice who are dedicated to design, process, and technology applications that make cities and other local communities more open and “user friendly.”
