Event Details


CrisisCamp is a volunteer technical community open to students, professionals and ninjas.

Come Learn and Create with us.  is a global network of volunteers who use creative problem solving and open technologies in partnership with NGO's and aid agencies to help people and communities in times and places of crisis. We seek not only coders, programmers, geospatial and visualization ninjas but collaborative, smart and savvy folks who can lead teams, manage projects, search the internet, translate languages. We embrace innovation and open systems. 

We'd love your help:

  • Learn how to help our partners (OpenStreetMap, Crowmap, Ushahidi, Sahana and more)
  • Help us create video and social media to tell our CrisisCamp story better
  • Create CrisisCamp training materials 

Help us make CrisisCamp in a Box: A toolkit to help anyone create a CrisisCamp and volunteer.

What to expect:

*We will be collaborating with virtual volunteers and in person

*We will be working on stage 1 of creating CrisisCamp in a Box (thanks London for the term) . We want to make it easer for any community around the world to create a CrisisCamp

*Create a  volunteer starter kit  in screencast or video formats

*You will learn about crowdsourcing and open source tools/partners for crisis, emergency and disaster management 

*We will even provide a room for folks to talk about crisis management and development policies with like minds

How will we connect? (links to be added)
