Agenda and Sessions

The agenda is co-developed with participants, facilitators, and partners in the time leading up and during the event.

Topic areas likely to be on the agenda include...

  • Existing Response Technology Projects
  • Situational Awareness
  • Responsible Data Lifecycles
  • Easier After-Action Reports
  • Self-Care for Organizers
  • Participant-Led Sessions: More than half of the agenda will be built by participants before and during the event, covering topics, tools, themes and issues proposed by those present.
  • Learning by Making: Hands-on workshops for sharing essential technology skills.

More, more more! Tell us what other hands-on tech skills you would like to learn, and we'll try to find facilitators to get you there.

You can also read more about the agenda and sessions.
