Event Details

 

CrisisCampSXSW will take place today to bring together with technology volunteers in three countries and 10 cities to provide local opportunities for citizens to assist in activities such as crisis mapping, data and RSS feed aggregation. In addition, people with specialized skills such as translation, computer programing and literacy advocates are encouraged to participate. Today we will be on the third floor of Texas Co Working (200 E. 6th Street). 
 
CrisisCamp is a open, collaborative event held in “barcamp” style with http://www.crisiscommons.org/ to provide local and international responders, Haitian community leaders and non-governmental organizations an opportunity to engage with operations on the ground in Chile. Tools and resources created by CrisisCamp volunteers can enhance responders' and relief agencies decision-making capability, transparency and collaboration.

This event is free and open to the public. You don't have to be technical to volunteer time.  We request that you bring a laptop, your creativity and a power strip with you (to share with others).

About CrisisCamp
Founded in March 2009 through an impromptu Tweetup at the Government 2.0 Camp, a small band of idealists and innovators gathered to discuss the idea of a creating a common community through a mash-up of citizen volunteers, crisis response organizations, international humanitarian relief agencies, non-profits and the private sector. Within minutes, the CrisisCamp concept was born to unite communities, seek common ground and cultivate innovation in the use of technology for mobility and efficiency during crisis.
