TransparencyCamp is an “unconference” for opengov. Each year, journalists, developers, technologists, policy-makers, government officials, students, academics, wonks and everyone in between gather together to share knowledge about how to use new technologies and policies to make our government really work for the people -- and to help our people work smarter with our government.

As an unconference, TransparencyCamp emphasizes the important contributions that each and every attendee brings with them into the sessions, workshops, and conversations associated with this event. In fact, attendees (yes, all of them) are brought into the process of making the schedule for the conference with the organizers and are encouraged to step up and lead sessions themselves. (Check out our TCamp 2012 recap video to get a better sense of what we mean.)

This year, Sunlight is partnering with the George Washington University's School of Media and Public Affairs to bring you the best TCamp yet. We're expecting unprecedented numbers and guests from all over the country and the globe. Hope to see you there!

For more information head to http://TransparencyCamp.org.
For the last five years, we've gathered together a variety of journalists, policy creators, technologists, concerned citizens, academics, watchdogs, students and others to build community, share best practices and problem-solve challenges to work in the transparency arena. Last year, we hosted more than 400 people from more than 30 countries and 26 U.S. states. This year, we’re expecting around 500 participants with even more participation from attendees across the country and abroad. Please check out http://TransparencyCamp.org for a preview of what to expect at this year’s unconference.
