CrisisCommons seeks to advance and support the use of open data and volunteer technology communities to catalyze innovation in crisis management and global development. CrisisCommons actively supports CrisisCamp, a barcamp event, which seeks to connect a global network of volunteers who use creative problem solving and open technologies to help people and communities in times and places of crisis. CrisisCampers are not only technical like coders, programmers, geospatial and visualization ninjas but are filled with creative and smart people who can lead teams, manage projects, share information, search the internet, translate languages, and apply intuitive and universal access interfaces.
We are currently building a CrisisCamp Directory so that people can connect locally and build resources like open data profiles which can be used if there was ever a crisis. If you are looking to sign up to create a CrisisCamp or if you just want to let us know you are interested if a need arises volunteer here.
Be sure to join the conversation on our email group - its where the latest and greatest information is shared.
