Event Details

OpenGov Camp is a one day conversation on how participation builds transparency to deliver efficiency. We are a community of doers and decision-makers talking about what works—and what doesn't. Whether you are a developer, journalist, activist, organizer or government employee, you should attend.

For one day, we ask you three questions:
  • Where is “local” Open Government going?
  • How can we deepen the knowledge of what Open Government can be?
  • What are the social and technical tools affecting Open Government’s development?
OpenGov is hosted in conjunction with Personal Democracy Forum (PdF) 2011, the world’s leading conference exploring and analyzing technology's impact on politics and government. The theme this year, at the eighth annual gathering, will be Agents of Change.

What to expect
This is a gathering born from the desire to share and learn in an open environment. It is an event with discussions, demos, and interaction from attendees. Anyone with something to contribute or with the desire to learn are welcome and encouraged. When you come, be prepared to share. When you leave, you’ll leave with actionable strategies for building efficient and engaging social campaigns and technical tools.

Schedule
  • 10:00 AM - Doors open / registration and coffee and bagels
  • 10:30 - Event kick off with introductions

  • 6:15 - late Post-Event debrief with drinks and food at Hurley’s 48th Street (between B’way and 8th)

History
OpenGov Camp is the third in a series of annual events the Open NY Forum has hosted creating a positive space for government workers, technologists, entrepreneurs, and citizens to engage and learn from each other. This year, we broaden our relationship, with three internationally known organizations,  Personal Democracy ForumReinvent Albany and Digital Democracy.

Who should attend?
You should! OpenGov is open to anyone who is excited about transparency and technology in government. New technology, mobile and society is a common interest of many OpenGov attendees, but what brings us together is where that theme crosses into other areas - not only technology and development, but entrepreneurship, design, art, engineering, socializing, and organizing. All of you - the passionate people who are driving innovation - are part of the culture that drives OpenGov and we can't wait to see you!

Organizer

BetaNYC

BetaNYC is a 21st century civic organization that envisions a New York City powered by the people, for the people, for the 21st century.

We are a not-for-profit organization that uses advocacy, data, and curriculum to improve municipal governance and empower individuals to make an impact.

* We demystify government policies and practices, and work to improve policy.
* We empower individuals and organizations with usable government information and data.
* We explore the future by building government technology prototypes for elected officials, their staff, community councils, the general government worker, and the average individual.

BetaNYC advocates for a participatory permaculture where open data, community empowerment, participatory government, and education coexist in advance of each other.
