WhereCamps are volunteer-created events for anyone interested in geography
and technology. Everyone who is interested in these topics is invited to
An unconference is a conference planned by the participants. We come
together in the morning and plan the sessions that will make up the day’s
discussions and activities. This gives everyone an opportunity to bring the
things that interest them the most to the table, ask questions, and talk
about new and exploratory topics. We value open participation, providing
access to new voices, and lowering barriers to participation. As a result,
the event is driven by the interests and talents of the participants.
WHEN & WHERE
