Event Details

Design a toolkit for a self-organizing civic movement

In a fun-but-focused 3 hours, registered attendees will contribute to the creation of a toolkit for a self-organizing, people-driven, nonpartisan movement for positive change in Toronto and beyond.

We see the municipal elections in 2010 as an excuse to gather people together to have real dialogues about the future of our communities. We believe that open source approaches can enable those conversations across the City of Toronto and beyond through community-based leadership.

We are tentatively calling this open toolkit "ChangeCamp-in-a-Box". This idea was born in a ChangeLab session at last year's ChangeCamp, and this year we plan to make it real.

If you are new to ChangeCamp and want to learn about its history please visit ChangeCamp.ca.

Thanks to the Toronto Public Library for donating the beautiful Appel Salon space.

Agenda

5:30 - Gather in the Appel Salon Prologue space for drinks and networking prior to the event

6:00 SHARP - We move to the main space to set the context and describe the structure of the design exercise.

9:00 - We wrap the design exercise and break for the evening.

What to Expect

If you attended last year's ChangeCamp, this event is different. It is not structured as an open-space style unconference. Instead, this is more like a large-scale ChangeLab session, where participants roll up their sleeves at tables of 8 around a single purpose.

Expect a great room filled with smart creative engaged people like you, working in small groups, learning by doing.

Registration Process:

  1. Find the ticket type that best describes you in the list above.
  2. Enter the amount of your pay-what-you-can donation (suggested $10, min $1)
  3. Complete your contact information, and answer the question of what gifts you bring
  4. You will receive an email confirmation of your registration. Paper tickets are not required.

You are welcome to attend without paying a donation online. Simply put "1" as the quantity and click on "Pay at the Door" on the order screen that follows. We ask those who are able to help keep the event accessible to all by giving the suggested donation to help cover event costs.

Your Donations & Sponsorships:

Your donations and sponsorships will be used to pay for, in order of priority: equipment rental, supplies, snacks/food. Any surplus will go toward the project, building the toolkit.The organizers are donating their time.

Bar

We will have a cash bar offering drinks  and sandwiches at the venue from 5:00 to 6:30 pm.

ChangeCamp

Re-imagining government and citizenship in the age of participation.

ChangeCamp is an event format, an open community and a set of tools and ideas designed to give citizens and governments the ability to work collaboratively in new ways to make change and to better address real-world challenges in our communities.

The ChangeCamp community is focused on two goals:

  1. helping governments become more open, transparent, participatory, innovative, efficient and effective
  2. helping citizens become more connected to each other around their civic passions in the place they call home
