As we get closer to the Vancouver ChangeCamp unconference day, are you curious about who else is working to promote open government, transparency, and broadening collaboration with citizens? Look no further than…the night before Vancouver ChangeCamp!
Back in March of this year, in Seattle, local area non-profit Knowledge As Power held a one-day conference called Open Gov West, convening US and Canadian open government advocates to foster progress on open government issues and technology. OGW alumni meeting groups have been starting to continue the conversations. The OGW organizers are also great friends of Vancouver ChangeCamp, so they are kindly holding their June meetup asa joint pre-Vancouver ChangeCamp networking evening!
Where: W2 (151 West Cordova — Google Map)
When: Friday, June 11, starting 7pm.
Who: Any and all Open Gov West or ChangeCamp attendees, or other changemakers interested in technology, open government or citizen-driven collaboration.
RSVP (Admission by Donation)
Cash Bar available, with raffle ticket draws throughout the evening!
This will be a great chance to hear more and learn about other perspectives, initiatives and ideas on why open government is important and how to make it more common, and to learn how others are moving open government forward. Hope to see you there!
