Civic tech gains momentum at CityCamp Minnesota

CityCamp-Minnesota2-300x144CityCamp Minnesota — back again for the first time in two years, constituents from various backgrounds, interests and cities gathered downtown Minneapolis at University of St. Thomas — Schulze Hall yesterday for a day of networking and communication.

The topics focused on strengthening our communities through civic engagement in the form of digital inclusion, open government, and collaboration among the private, public and non-profit sector. Decentralized in nature, 24 breakout sessions were organically formed by 150 participants, creating a highly interactive format rich with relevant topics.

We talked with the driving forces behind CityCamp for an in-depth conversation about the unconference, as well as some recent highlights for Open Twin Cities.
