CityCamp San Francisco


We’re big fans of CityCamp here at Sunlight. It’s very cool to watch the process of government opening before your eyes, as these local unconferences bring together city officials, activists, journalists and developers to make real change in their communities.

So I was pumped to get this message from Jay Nath in San Francisco:

CityCamp San Francisco 2011: Ideas and Action is shaping up to be a great unconference event on June 18 at 1 So. Van Ness, but it won’t be the same without you. If you’ve already registered, we hope you’ll do so today, and if you already have, please tell your friends. You can register free through Eventbrite here.

CityCampSF focuses on innovation for municipal governments and community organizations. We’ll have discussion and action sessions around sustainability, health, digital engagement and much more. Bring your best ideas and action!

TechCentralSF is hosting a pre-CityCampSF mixer and panel on “Gamification for Good” on June 17. You can get advance discount tickets here. We’re happy to have TechCentralSF as an organizing sponsor, along with GovFresh, NationBuilder and Third Thursdays SF. Media sponsors include Gov 2.0 Radio, Shareable and OpenSF, and fiscal sponsors are Tropo, Blockboard and FirmStep.

Have ideas for unconference sessions? List and vote on them here.
