From the official website: CityCamp Colorado will bring together people like yourself to share ideas to improve local government. CityCamp is an unconference focused toward the participants sharing insights and experiences and taking action to bring about the significant, positive change our communities need. At an unconference, content is created and organized by participants. This format provides an excellent opportunity for an active, creative, open exchange geared toward action. Afterall, innovation is only possible when good ideas are shared and well executed.
CityCamp Colorado, like other CityCamps, has four main goals:
1. Bring together local government officials, municipal employees, experts, programmers, designers, citizens, and journalists to share perspectives and insights about the cities in which they live;
2. Create and maintain patterns for using the Web to facilitate local government transparency and effective local governance;
3. Foster communities of practice and advocacy on the role of the Web, mobile communication, online information, and open data in cities; and
4. Create outcomes that participants will act upon after the event is over.
By taking part in CityCamp Colorado you will be able to explore ideas, lessons learned, and strategies that can be implemented in your organization and shared across municipalities, anywhere in the world. Of particular interest will be social, collaborative, and participatory efforts, organizational culture, overcoming obstacles, and technology developments, such as mobile applications and open data.
Most importantly, the organizers of CityCamp Colorado recognize that you and your local governments and community organizations have the most direct influence and impact on our daily lives. This event seeks to create innovative and practical solutions to make cities and other local communities more open and “user friendly.”
CityCampCO is organized by Colorado Smart Communities with support of volunteers throughout the Front Range cities of Arvada, Boulder, Castle Rock, and Denver.
