CityCamp is an "unconference" focused on innovation for municipal governments and community organizations using the Web as a platform. As an unconference, content for CityCamp is not programmed for a passive audience of participants. Instead, content is created and organized by participants and coordinated by facilitators and participants are expected to play an active role in sessions. This provides an excellent format for creative, open exchange geared toward action.
Each City Camp has four main goals:
1. Bring together local government officials, municipal employees, experts, programmers, designers, citizens and journalists to share perspectives and insights about the cities in which they live
2. Create and maintain patterns for local government transparency and effective local governance using the Web as a platform
3. Foster communities of practice and advocacy on the role of the Web, online information, and open data in cities
4. Create outcomes that participants will act upon after the event is over
