TechCamp Santiago

Event Date(s): 
November 20, 2010

We happily answered a call from the amazing folks at Personal Democracy Forum to partner on some work for The Man in Chile.

In collaboration with PDF and the Tech@State team, we led design of the Spanish-language agenda for TechCamp Santiago, trained the facilitation team, and oversaw the proceedings. En Espanol, no less!

The goals of the event were two-fold. First, to bring together techies and NGO stakeholders from across South America for discussion on how technology could better support NGO and community needs in the region. And second, to generate some problem statements for hacking on at the December 4th Random Hacks of Kindness events taking place around the world. Check out press coverage in Fast Company.

We heartily thank PDF for getting us involved in this first-of-its-kind event, and to all our Aspiration allies across Latin America, including EducaLibre, Nunklaki Comunicações and Chile Ayuda for their amazing help lighting up participants and keeping the event facilitation real.
