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.)

Finalised IsleGC12 schedule and remote attendance info

Hello all attendees, both remote and in person!

We are almost there, and with that we have a finalised schedule for the IslandGovCamp weekend (see below). On here you can see the times and places you need to be along with any vital extra info.

Tomorrow, we will be sending out an email to remote attendees with specifics on how the broadcasting and remote discussion will be structured (e.g. which twitter hashtags to follow, where to get admin info, when streaming links will appear, etc), along with suggestions for facilitating interaction in the IslandGovCamp sessions (In person attendees will be given all this information when they arrive at Orkney College on Saturday).

In the meantime, keep an eye on #IslandGovCamp and @IslandGovCamp on Twitter and posts on this blog for administrative updates, and get ready for an exciting weekend!
