  • Govcamps are:

    • free to attend
    • focused on attendee participation
    • relentlessly positive, constructive and creative
  • The rules are:

    • have fun
    • move to where you can make a difference
    • let everyone speak
    • follow our code of conduct
  • On the day:

    After a quick introduction from the organisers, anyone can pitch a session. This is how we create the session grid (the agenda). You can view all the sessions online.
