The Open Development Camp is nearly there. On 7&8 November an international crowd will gather in Amsterdam to discuss the current state of Open Development.
We have a full, 2-day program, with lots of interesting speakers and sessions.
To highlight just a few:
What are the New Frontiers of Open Development?
According to Felipe Estefan (World Bank Institute), the future of Open Development should pay more attention to local environments, there should be more focus on the demand side of data, and on better bridges between governments and citizens.
Felipe Estefan specializes on Open Government and Citizen Engagement. He is currently part of the Open Government cluster in the World Bank Institute.
Ever wondered what a socially fair smartphone looks like from the inside? Come and find out during Fairphone's workshop at ODC13.
How much do you really know about what goes into making a phone? If your answer is “not much”, you’re not alone. Modern supply chains are a tangled international web of suppliers, distributors, wholesalers, warehouses and factories. And the more complex the product, the more difficult it is to trace every element and process to its source.
To make the supply chain more transparent, we are opening up the entire system to understand what shapes our economy – starting with smartphones.
Have a look at the full program here (http://opendevelopmentcamp.org/#odc-program) and join us on 7 & 8 November in Amsterdam for a reality check on Open Development.
Come and experience how new ways of working, open data, tools and technology come together in the future of international development & humanitarian aid.
N.B. As this is not one of our regular 'Open Teas', but an international, 2-day event, we're asking for a small contribution to the organising costs.
Tickets are €75,- and can be bought either via http://opendevelopmentcamp.org or via Lanyrd (http://lanyrd.com/2013/odc13/).
