Be2camp is for people interested in openly sharing how the latest web and mobile applications and web design techniques (Web 2.0 - blogs, Twitter, Wikis, etc) can help build a better, more sustainable built environment - planning, design, construction, occupation and management of buildings, services, landscape, etc.
Be2camp events - In October 2008, Be2camp 2008, the first 'unconference' focused on Web 2.0 and the built environment, was held in London. Since then, independently and in partnership with others, we've held over 40 further events (sharing literally 100s of presentations) - in Birmingham, Colchester, Dundee, Leeds, Liverpool, London and Manchester - and in 2011 we held the first Be2Awards.

The continued success of Leeds Metropolitan University's ThinkBIM events (organised by the Centre for Knowledge Exchange and facilitated by the BE2 team) saw last week's event reach out across the UK and around the world via social media.

The half-day conference had some top speakers - notably Government BIM Task Group chairman Mark Bew and BuildingSmart UK's Nick Tune (both of whom also managed workshops) - and a US contribution from Nathan Wood of DPR Construction in California. As usual we managed to curate…Continue
GreenVision's latest event, supported by the BE2 team and hosted by WSP Group in Leeds, drilled into the detail of funding models for Low Carbon Retrofit, Business Drivers for Green Commercial Buildings, Community Energy Solutions and the real Green Deal, moving the discussion from existing legislation and targets to where we need to be heading in order to reap the benefits of delivering change.
We were joined by Jon Alker, Head of Policy and Communications at UKGBC and David Symons, Head of Environment and Energy, WSP, who shared their interpretations of the current situation in the sector. If you missed the event, you can still review much of what was discussed:
Social Media Week will again be held in London in September, this year 23-27 September inclusive, which means we may well be organising the Be2Awards and Be2Talks to take place during that week (following the successful 2012 event).
We haven't booked our venue yet, or fixed a date (if you have somewhere that you'd like to offer, please let us know), but we would ideally organise the event to take place on the afternoon of Wednesday 25 or Thursday 26 September - so please pencil these dates in your calendars.
The SMW theme for 2013: is…Continue
