Based on the successful model pioneered in the United Kingdom, Social Innovation Camp CEE aims to jumpstart a "digital activist" movement across the Central European region, committed to using the Internet for social change.

The SICamp CEE team is looking for talented web developers and geeks with a social activist bent to participate in the event in Bratislava, to help bring to life the projects that are chosen from among the idea submissions.  

How to Participate

You do not have to be from the seven countries of CEE to participate.   SICamp CEE can cover up to $400 of your transportation costs, though you are expected to find your own housing/accomodation.   For more information, questions, or to participate, email Kristy Ironside at ironsidek@tol.org

About SICamp CEE

The project is organized by Transitions (TOL), a non-profit media development organization based in Prague, with support from the Trust for Civil Society in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE Trust). The event, which is being held in Bratislava, 16-18 September 2009, coincides with the CEE Trust's Civil Society Forum, which will reflect on 20 years of civil society in Central and Eastern Europe.
