Planning Camp in Oakland this Saturday is an unconference exploring urban planning, technology, and social change.

This Saturday (Oct 12th), Urban Strategies Council and OpenPlans are excited to bring PlanningCamp to Oakland and the East Bay!  Be there on October 12th if you're working at the intersection of technology and the hard effort of making better cities -- on the technology side, or the planning side, or a bit of both.

To be held at Laney College.

Here are a few of the sessions form the NYC PlanningCamp to whet your appetite:
  • NACTO urban street design guide: How do we change the DNA of city streets?
  • Gentrification of the waterfront after Sandy in Nook.
  • Digital Deserts (infrastructure + adoption + literacy)
  • Participatory Budgeting: how can we keep the bad ideas out?
  • How can technology build social capital and economic opportunities for low income communities? (brainstorm)
  • Lost in Translation—>tools to increase participation among immigrant communities
  • Carshare & self driving cars: How do we repurpose the street?
  • Measuring the Quality of Bicycle Infrastructure.

PlanningCamp Bay Area will take place at Laney College in the Forum Building, close
to E 10th St. We're just a block away from the Lake Merritt BART, close to AC Transit bus lines, and totally accessible by bike.
