Who are the Speakers
As is the tradition with Barcamps/unconferences, the speakers are the participants. Anyone can run a session AND the session schedule is created the day of the event. This sounds like a recipe for chaos, but the more “interactive, participatory, and conversational” format always turns out to be fertile ground.

Thousands of organizations and millions of people are currently working to effectively tackle a set of profound global challenges through the creation, adoption and commercialization of sustainable approaches and clean technologies. Our efforts are fragmented. It is time to promote a culture of working together while maintaining our own special niches by leveraging shared and openly licensed solutions.

This conference is organized by a coalition of individuals and organizations dedicated to positive social change. Join us for the first Open Sustainability Network unconference as we explore free content and knowledge sharing in sustainability, international development, appropriate technology and solutions to poverty.

Who’s Coming/Running the Show:
In true unconference style, all attendees are expected to contribute to running the event in some way. For some people this means giving a presentation or running a tutorial. For others it means volunteering – podcasting the event, organizing carpools, donating food, or making sure the rooms are stocked with whiteboard markers. It all depends on your interests and abilities – there are many ways to lend a hand.
