VanChangeCamp addresses the demand for a renewed relationship among citizens and government. We seek to create connections, knowledge, tools and policies that drive transparency, civic engagement and democratic empowerment.

The event is a partly structured unconference. Six predefined sessions <http://wiki.changecamp.ca/VanChangeCamp/Session_Ideas>  present ideas that exemplify the driving forces behind VanChangeCamp. 14 unconference slots have been left open, with the agenda to be created collaboratively at the start of the event to allow participants to share their experiences and expertise.

Registration for VanChangeCamp is now open. <http://vanchangecamp.eventbrite.com/>

REGISTRATION INCLUDES:

* All keynotes and activities
* All breakout sessions
* Admission to the pre-conference event on Friday night, including an "Unconference 101" prep session
* Free access to a webinar on unconferences and social media, to be held one week prior to the event. Exact date TBA.

If this is your first experience with a camp/unconference or you're not an expert in social media, this event is a perfect intro. The webinar and prep session will tell you everything you need to know.
