The true Be2camp experience

Be2camp events are participative. We aim to bring together people interested in using social media (aka Web 2.0) to help discuss, collaborate, plan, design, construct and manage a better, more sustainable built environment. In Be2camp events:

  • the content delivered is partly the result of discussion and collaboration beforehand by participants
  • events are low-cost or even free to attend
  • the formal roles of organisers, speakers and audience are deliberately eroded
  • participants contribute comments, photos, video, blog posts, etc, before, during and after the event
  • presentations and ad hoc contributions are captured as knowledge to be shared
  • involvement can extend to people watching, listening or reading about the event via the internet - even months later.
