Mark Elliott has arrived back in New York and is very excited to be involved in Participation Camp ’09 this weekend (27-28 June). The event is being organised using the open space method meaning people can nominate themselves as speakers and the event will be totally interactive as the organisers are encouraging people to get involved virtually.
Remember to follow Twitter activity through the hashtag: #PCamp09
Speaker highlights include:
Mark Elliott (Collabforge) will lead a presentation on engaging citizens in collaborative planning and policy-making using participatory tools and methods.
Gale A Brewer (New York City Council) will host a discussion on her proposed legislation for making New York City’s public data accessible and machine readable.
Peter Corbett (iStrategy Labs) will discuss the innovative approach they’re using for the second instalment of the Apps for Democracy contest.
