Location Details:
Oakland City Hall

Oakland is our city so its future is up to us. Join us for the 6th annual CityCamp at Oakland’s historic City Hall to share ideas on how to improve local government. This is a space for Oakland non-profits and community organizations to collaborate on ways to tackle Oakland's most pressing issues.

Everyone is welcome at this free event.

Our goals:

Bring together residents, young people, students, community leaders, local government officials, municipal employees, artists, developers, designers, journalists to share perspectives and insights about living and working in Oakland, and what can be improved.

Work together to find joint solutions. There might be multiple organizations tackling the same issue but you wouldn't know it unless we all come together.

Learn best practices from the tech world in areas such as Project Management, User Research, and Communications/Outreach. Use these practices to further the mission of organizations and be more effective with you do.

*Details of the Agenda will be posted as we get closer to the event.*

The format of CityCamp will primarily be one of an unconference. If you're not sure what an unconference is, please familiarize yourself with unconferences before the day of the event: Learn more about Unconferences or watch this quick summary.
