We promote different formats of events that enable citizen engagement in civic projects. Our favorite are hackathons and barcamps. We are sure that none in Russia knows how to organize such events better than us.

CityCamp is unconference (barcamp) about cities and for cities. We investigate and discuss how to improve our cities, develop civic projects. Participants (like urbanists, journalists, scientists, programmers, etc) discuss problems and challenges of modern cities `and try to find solutions with technologies and new media.
