TransportationCamp: an UNconference
November 19, 2016 @ 12:00 am
If you’re into transportation, now’s the time to engage, and the TransportationCamp PGH unconference is the place to do it. Bring your ideas and lead a session! Be a part of shaping the explosive pace of change in technology, shared use mobility, the integration of transportation and the built environment, and a host of other issues.
An unconference is when people that attend determine the sessions. Attendees take post it notes and write what they want to talk about/discuss on THE WALL. All the topics are then grouped together and determine the sessions based on all the inputs.
Instead of the conference host deciding what’s important, the attendees decide. Plus each session is a conversation, not talking heads. Attendees get access to the people they want to have discussions with right in the session and get to open it up to a room of people, rather than waiting in line after a “talk” and exchanging a few sentences. Furthermore, it’s localized. There are a lot of issues/ideas that will bubble up that are unique to Pittsburgh. The hope is that planners, practitioners, politicians, engineers, thinkers, students, and ordinary people can have meaningful discussions about Pittsburgh and its regional transportation system and its future.
At TransportationCamp PGH, all possibilities about the future of mobility are up for grabs, and your ideas will power the conversation. From big to small, train to bike lane to app – come share with like-minded, leading thinkers and doers who are revolutionizing the transportation field here in Western PA. Who knows, maybe you’ll even find some new friends to move your idea forward.
