CrisisCamp Ignite Session hosted by the World Bank - Friday, June 12 7pm

Posted by Heather Blanchard on Jun 11, 2009

You are invited to CrisisCamp Ignite Session at the World Bank!

CrisisCamp DC is part of a global movement who is bringing together volunteers, academia, non-profits, companies and government officials to share best practices and lessons learned to advocate for further use of technology and telecommunications to assist citizens and communities during crisis. 

Founded in March 2009 through an impromptu Tweetup at the Government 2.0 Camp, a small band of idealists and innovators gathered together to discuss the idea of a creating a common community through a mash-up of citizen volunteers, crisis response organizations, international humanitarian relief, non-profits and the private sector (especially the technology and telecommunications sectors). Within minutes, CrisisCamp DC was born to unite communities, seek common ground and innovation in the use of technology and mobility during crisis. 

CrisisCamp Ignite Session will be held on Friday, June 12, 2009 from 7:00pm - 9:00pm. This event will be conducted as an Ignite session - 20 presentations, 5 minutes a piece. Wine and cheese will be provided by our hosts at the World Bank. Pre-registration is required to enter the building. Please register at
