GovCamp: your chance to work towards positive change

GovCamp is coming to O-town June 1, 2010 – the invite reads:

We expect that participants will explore the role of provincial and federal governments in cultivating the growth and prosperity of Canada’s vibrant communities.

Sign up quickly if you fancy yourself a wonk, an engaged citizen or someone with good ideas. It’s free, but likely to ‘sell out’.

Never experienced an unconference before? Well, don’t let the terminology fool you into thinking its some newfangled thingymajig.  it’s just like a good book club – you pick a theme, anyone can come, and the participants themselves suggest & discuss the books. There’s likely to be lots of discussion, thinking about our collective desired futures and maybe some problem solving.  They might even serve food.GovCampLogo just says the words GovCamp in blue with an outline of  a leaf
