Open Colorado is announcing the third annual CityCamp Colorado unconference scheduled for Friday, October 26, 2012. The unconference will bring together people to share ideas that aim to enhance government transparency, citizen participation, and accountability. Ultimately, these goals look to enhance the citizen experience and foster a more healthy, livable community.

CityCamp Colorado will build on the success of the recent Code for Communities Hack-a-thon and other exciting developments of the technology and civic communities in Colorado.

CityCamp is an unconference focused on the participants sharing insights and experiences and taking action to bring about the significant, positive changes that our communities need. At an unconference, participants create and organize the content. This format provides an excellent opportunity for an active, creative, open exchange geared toward action.

The event will be held at the Atrium of the Wellington E. Webb Building of the City and County of Denver.
