Crisis Camp London
Crisis Camp is a series of BarCamp style events focused on the role of technology in humanitarian assistance and disaster relief, that are taking place in several locations around the world including London!
Next event - TBA
There were no specifically Crisis Camp London events during 2011. Although we started a Meetup Group, the London ICT4D group. We will announce details here if/when we decide to do another one, perhaps in response to a crisis somewhere.

What We're Doing
We coordinated a response to the London riots using the crisis commons wiki here:
- What's happening at the next camp? See above.
- What happened last camp? We continued the Pakistan floods response that started with the first Cambridge CrisisCamp. That was a long time ago though
Projects we're working on
- Honshu Quake
- Pakistan/2010 Floods
