    About CrisisCamp

    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.
