CrisisCamp is part of a global movement who is bringing together
volunteers, academia, non-profits, companies and government officials
to share best practices and lessons learned to advocate for further
use of technology and telecommunications to assist citizens and
communities during crisis.
Founded in March 2009 through an impromptu Tweetup at the Government
2.0 Camp, a small band of idealists and innovators gathered together
to discuss the idea of a creating a common community through a mash-up
of citizen volunteers, crisis response organizations, international
humanitarian relief, non-profits and the private sector (especially
the technology and telecommunications sectors). Within minutes,
CrisisCamp was born to unite communities, seek common ground and
innovation in the use of technology and mobility during crisis.
