LocalGovCamp unconference for local government

LocalGovCamp an unconference for local governmentLocalGovCamp is an unconference for local government being held in Birmingham at Fazeley Studios on 20 June 2009.

The event will be will be a gathering of people interested in how local government needs to adapt to a world of social networks and data sharing.

While the event has sold out, it may still be possible to get a ticket through the reserve list and you can take part in the content and discussion via email in this Google Group.

I’m going along to the event for ideas on how the Observatory can get better at sharing data and information using online tools and the social web. As part of this, I’m hoping to learn from a (potential?) session by Tim Davies on overcoming the hurdles to online engagement with policy making.

  1. Thanks for the mention, Gavin – it’s going to be a great day!

    • You’re welcome. Looks like the day is shaping up nicely.

      Tim’s post on the 50 small hurdles – and the ideas on solving the hurdles added to the followup wiki at http://www.practicalparticipation.co.uk/wiki/socialstrategy:start – really struck a chord with me. It’d be great to hear more about the solutions other people in public sector organisations have come up with.
