Your participation

We are committed to the principles of equity and diversity for GovCamps, and in this spirit we want to keep the events free to attend.  However, a lot of hard work from volunteers and generosity from sponsors goes into making this possible.  So, in exchange for your free ticket we’re asking a couple of things of you:

  1. Tell us why coming to a GovCamp event is important to you

As part of your registration, we’re asking a few broad questions about why you want to attend and what you are hoping to get out of this GovCampAU event.  This adds value in a couple of ways – as convenors, it helps us understand people’s hopes and expectations, and means we can craft the day to make sure everyone gets as much as possible out of it.  Answering these questions also helps you get clear about why you want to attend, so that you arrive at the event with purpose and ready to have open conversations with a diversity of people.

  1. Share your stories and learning

The sharing of social knowledge – ideas, practices, tools and views – is a key part of the GovCamp experience. So, please:

  • turn up on the day (or if you can’t, make sure you release your ticket to someone who can)
  • listen, challenge and participate in the conversations
  • take responsibility for your own personal learning and development outcomes
  • share your learning openly via social streams at the event or on other spaces.  For example, this can be in the form of tweets on the day, a blog post on your own site or an email to the organisers sharing your observations that we can publish on the govcampau.org website.

We welcome your full participation and hope that you can join us at one of the events!
