Jan. 10: Celebrate your city on CityCamp Day

CityCamp

To celebrate the fifth anniversary of CityCamp, we’re encouraging cities across the world to celebrate CityCamp Day on January 10, 2015.

For those unfamiliar with the concept, CityCamp is an unconference focused on innovation and collaboration for municipal governments, community organizations and citizens.

CityCamp aims to:

  • Bring together local government officials, municipal employees, experts, developers, designers, citizens and journalists to share perspectives and insights about their cities
  • Create outcomes that participants will act upon

Here’s how to get started:

Learn more about CityCamp at citycamp.com, follow on Twitter and Facebook and sign up for the newsletter.

CityCampers: Enter and vote on the 2011 GovFresh Awards

2011 GovFresh Awards

Every day, tech-minded citizens across the country are doing good by their communities, literally geeking out about how they can help re-define the relationship government has with its citizens, using technology as a democratic tool to collaboratively empower both.

So much is happening in the civic technology community – website redesigns, new websites, open data initiatives, apps, camps, developer contests, hackathons and more – it’s hard to get a perspective on or truly appreciate the collective work of these dot-dogooders both inside and outside government.

That’s why we created the 2011 GovFresh Awards.

It’s time to recognize and honor all that’s been accomplished this year.

It’s time to say thank you.

Here are the categories. Start entering and start voting.
