What is it?

Crisis Camp London is a BarCamp style event focussed on the role of technology in humanitarian assistance and disaster relief. Projects at CrisisCamp Haiti include open mapping, developing applications to aggregate local resource information for relief workers, and developing low-bandwidth applications for use by the relief effort.

It is a part of the Crisis Commons movement. It is taking place in several locations around the world including London.

There is a Crisis Camp in London every Saturday. Next Camp is Sat 13th Feb 2010 @ London Knowledge Lab. Go to eventbrite to register: http://crisicampldn.eventbrite.com/
