The Internet has become a central tool of the democratic process. Can we create innovative participation opportunities, develop usable tools, and are the right people paying attention? eDemocracyCamp2 is a participant-driven unconference to explore how the Internet can improve the citizen experience of democracy.
On day 2 of his Presidency, President Obama issued a memorandum calling for greater transparency, participation and collaboration. eDemocracyCamp2 is an opportunity to think big about how participation and collaboration can be done better through the Internet.
America’s appetite for public participation – and interest in online technologies – is greater than it has ever been. Many other nations around the world are also experimenting with a new, online and mobile approach to civic engagement. Now is the time to create, promote and advance the use of the internet for greater citizen voice in democracy.
eDemocracyCamp2 is a pre-conference event to Politics Online Conference ’09, which will be held April 20-21 at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, DC
