Responsive Gov Summit, 7-8 June 2016, Berlin (Organized by startupbootcamp, Civocracy, and Impact Hub Berlin)

At the Responsive Gov Summit leaders will redesign leadership for the new era of citizen participation and data driven decisions.

Local governments and municipalities are faced with unique challenges never previously encountered. Simultaneously, technology has offered new and promising possibilities to engage communities in decision-making and co-creation. The fast pace of those changes call for a new paradigm in the way leaders and their communities interact.

The Responsive Gov Summit will provide leaders with the knowledge, tools , and necessary methods and structures to adapt to this changing environment. As a dynamic conference that will ask for active participation from its attendees, Responsive Gov's mission is to connect innovators with leaders to identify and set a direction for the future of their collaboration with communities.
