Just a week away!

We are just a week away from Honolulu’s first ever CityCamp Unconference and I would like to give you some pointers to get the most out of this extraordinary event. Try to be at UH Campus Center before 8:30am so we can get started on time.

In typical unconference format we are all participants. The sessions are crowd sourced and an environment of peer-to-peer, two way dialog is encouraged. Bring your ideas and creativity. Be open minded and lets think of ways to make Honolulu a better city.

Things will happen very quick over the course of the day. During the registration period be sure to get involved with session selection. We will have the popular ideas posted on the session grid. This is also the time to make new suggestions. We encourage you to sign up for your topic of choice at this time.

As the day progresses, think TEAM. We want these ideas to take shape and that is going to require teamwork.

Here is what the draft agenda looks like:
