Connecting Grassroots to Government for Disaster Management:
A Policy Roundtable
On behalf of the Commons Lab of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars (The Wilson Center), the National Alliance for Public Safety GIS Foundation, the International Association for Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management, ESRI, TechChange, NetHope, and Project EPIC, we are honored to invite you to participate in a LIVE WEBCAST of the policy roundtable “Connecting Grassroots to Government for Disaster Management."
Unfortunately, the workshop itself is now full, but we will be making the majority of the panel discussions available live over the web from this Wilson Center webpage on:
- Thursday, September 13th from 8:30 AM to 5:35 PM Eastern (stay on this page for Day 1), and
- Friday, September 14 from 9:30 AM to 3:00 PM Eastern (click on this link for Day 2)
See the bottom of this page to download copies of the agenda and background materials.
Social Media Engagement
In addition, we had so much fun with TechChange helping us with our last event (Crowdsourcing and USAID Development Credit Loans) that we’ve asked them to facilitate the social media engagement for the keynote sessions on
- Keynote Discussion: Agency Vision and Decision Maker Information Needs on Thursday, September 13th, from 8:30 - 10:00 AM Eastern, and
- Keynote on Connecting Grassroots to Government through Open Innovation on Friday, September 14th, from 1:00 - 2:00 PM US Eastern.
