Event Details

This Saturday, January 23 from 10am-10pm at a UC Irvine Calit2 Building, we will be hosting the second CrisisCamp Haiti Los Angeles to bring together volunteers to collaborate on technology projects which aim to assist in Haiti's relief efforts by providing data, information, maps and technical assistance to NGOs, relief agencies and the public.

This event is free and open to the public. You don't have to be technical to volunteer time.  Also, you may show up at anytime during the day for as long as you wish - although obviously we will get the most done with the most people hours!

About CrisisCamp

CrisisCamp will bring together domain experts, developers, and first responders around improving technology and practice for humanitarian crisis management and disaster relief.
Each and every day, people across the world can find themselves in crisis. Whether it be for a day, a month or an area of social distress, we all have a common need to connect with loved ones, access information and offer assistance to others.

CrisisCamps are hosted in a barcamp style where great minds come together to share their knowledge and expertise for social good.
