Events Guide: ChangeCamp Halifax

HALIFAX – ChangeCamp Halifax is one of many ChangeCamps being run across the country that aim to encourage public participation through harnessing digital media and social networking. The event will include presentations and ‘breakout sessions,’ where different groups will discuss political issues of particular significance to Halifax like “what changes would you like to see in the area of sustainable transportation, community housing, transparency in public information, poverty alleviation, etc.?”

Groups will then discuss both web-based and non-web-based strategies to address these issues in workshops and short sessions.  ChangeCamp Halifax promises to be non-partisan and action- and solutions-oriented, and will be a great opportunity for exploring the question of how new social media tools (like Spacing!) can help to address the issues facing Halifax today.
