A self organised unconference for anyone with an interest in services in islands, wherever they may be (including the big one with Cardiff, Edinburgh, and London on it); and for anyone with connections to islands, however tenuous. Also (in May 2012 and May 2015), an opportunity for visitors to Orkney to see puffins!

IslandGovCamp #IsleGC15 : Saturday and Sunday 30-31 May 2015
Kirkwall Grammar School, Orkney (and online)

(There will also be an island visit, and/or bus tour in Orkney on Friday 29 May 2015, for govcampers travelling to Orkney who can arrive a day or 2 early.)

Sharing transport to #IslandGovCamp

Once again we are basing our efforts to facilitate this event entirely on the great ideas behind ScotGovCamp2 in September 2011. James Coltham reminded me in a tweet that there was a map (created by Nick)to encourage the sharing of transport to that event.

Ten minutes (and a bit of cutting, pasting and changing of names/dates) later, we have the map below, complete with instructions for use! So, if you are able to offer a lift, would like to travel on the train, ferry or plane in company, or have any other observations to make about your own personal travel and accommodation plans, please edit them into the map!

(Using the map shown below, most people will have to zoom out quite a bit, to find their journey's starting point! Alternatively, I think this link will allow you to start with a view of the whole of the UK, and zoom in.)

  1. Thanks for sorting this out Sweyn. Hope people find it useful for organising travel sharing, or just for seeing where everyone else is coming from :)
