CrisisCamp Toronto is a member of CrisisCommons.org - a global network of volunteers who use creative problem solving and open technologies to help people and communities in times and places of crisis.
We will share knowledge, test and hack tools and create a plan of action.
Who should attend: project managements, idea hackers, emergency planners, software developers, international development specialists, social/digital media specialists, open data, open web, open source and open government advocates.
Each of us bring skills to the table. What if we collaborated and crowdsourced to help our neighbours by mapping and using situational awareness? What if we created projects and tools to help those who help us in our city, province, country and world?
This event is to help our community be more prepared and to build partnerships between Canadian emergency management, NGO, project managers, software developers, technical experts and social media folks.
