      PlanningCamp Bay Area

      PlanningCamp is an unconference about technology and the future of urban planning.

      Be there on October 12th if you're working at the intersection of technology and the hard effort of making better cities -- on the technology side, or the planning side, or a bit of both.

      Spend a day in sessions led by your peers, exploring new and old challenges. Whether you're thinking about the role technology in public involvement, increasing equity, modeling, analysis, community organizing, at local to regional scales, PlanningCamp will be an opportunity to go deep into conversations and form new connections.

      Who will be there?

      Unconferences work best with a diversity of attendees. We're working hard to invite a crowd that reflects the variety of people working on urban issues. Please help us spread the word among your smartest planning and technology friends.

      An "unconference"??

      If this is your first unconference, congratulations! An unconference is a conference where sessions are programmed and led by the attendees. Unconferences are popular in the tech world because they reflect the culture of the industry – hands-on, flexible, a little casual but very hard working. All the sessions are open for attendees to define, describe, and lead. You'll find the format to be energizing and entertaining. Look out for more about attending an unconference as we get closer to the event, and if you're curious, check out some of the past events at TransportationCamp, the big sister event of PlanningCamp.

      Where will it be?

      PlanningCamp Bay Area will take place at Laney College in the Forum Building, close to E 10th St. We're just a block away from the Lake Merritt BART, close to AC Transit bus lines, and totally accessible by bike.


      The unconference experience includes plenty of time in coversation over breakfast, lunch and snack breaks. Plus, enough coffee for a high-energy day. Tickets will help us offset food and drinks costs, but let us know if the price of the ticket might prevent you attending.

      Why are you organizing PlanningCamp?

      With support from the Knight Foundation, OpenPlans is organizing PlanningCamps in multiple cities in 2013 and 2014. We’re using the unconferences to explore what’s needed in Plan In A Box, a software tool to support greater sharing of informtion about planning projects.
