The open government movement (like most of the online world) is obsessed with “unconferences” -- meet-ups, of sorts, where the participants determine the content of and lead sessions around a pre-determined theme. When done right, it can be a powerful tool for building community.
Sunlight held its first unconference, TransparencyCamp, three years ago in an effort to get the diverse groups of people thinking about and working for government transparency together. From the conversations and problem-solving that took place there, we’ve seen the emergence of some incredible initiatives - take, for example, CityCamp.
This year, we want to go further. We want to focus on government transparency not just on Capitol Hill, but where you live. So, we need your help.
Please take a minute to fill out this survey and let us know what you want to get out of TransparencyCamp.
Never been to a TransparencyCamp or even an unconference before? Not a problem. We’re still interested in knowing what open government issues interest you, what you would want to get out of this sort of experience and how we can improve on the experiences you’ve had at similar events in the past.
TransparencyCamp 2011 will be open to people from across the country. We’re relying on your input to make it the best it can be.
Thanks for your help.
