We're planning a OSNCamp in London - the second meeting of the Open Sustainability Network (the first was in San Francisco: OSNCamp 2008).

There are two proposed events:

  • A possible mini BarCamp in late 2008 or early 2009. This would be an informal half day or evening gathering;
  • There is talk of a more serious event in early 2009.

Late 2008[edit | edit source]

This is planned as a mini BarCamp. (That just seems more achievable, although it can be made longer if the participants wish. One option is to do it early, and let people continue informally if they wish.) This means:

  • Around half a day,
  • At least X orgs or Y people to firmly commit before confirming the date and details? (I originally set X=5 and Y=10, but this is not really necessary, if it's very informal. --Chriswaterguy 22:03, 29 November 2008 (UTC))


  • Sometime between mid-Dec and mid-Jan. Vinay is in London until (probably) at least mid-Jan, so definitely something should happen before then. Andrew Lamb is busy until mid-December.

Publicity[edit | edit source]
