Agenda and Sessions
The agenda is co-developed with participants, facilitators, and partners in the time leading up and during the event.
We'll strive to build capacity for humanitarian aid and disaster response efforts through technology and community. This event happens the weekend before the related but different Humanitarian Technology Conference.
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.
