  • Political Innovation day: How it works Edinburgh 13.11.2010 Belfast 20.11.2010 Organised by:
  • What is an Unconference ?
    • It’s just like an ordinary conference, except…
    • There are (almost) no scheduled speakers
    • There is (almost) no pre-prepared agenda
    • You can propose and host your own sessions
    • It’s ‘in the round’ rather that ‘Proscenium Arch’ – everybody gets a chance to speak and listen
    • It’s free to attend
  • What to bring?
    • There will be free secure wireless on the day
    • Bring a laptop if you like – each session would benefit from a blogger being there
    • Bring recording equipment – camera / video / audio
    • Bring your phone – use the #picamp hashtag on Twitter
    • Bring your tat as well – promotional stuff you want to give away – pens, notepads, those logo-loved stress-balls, USB keys, post-it pads etc. Surprise us…..
  • What is Political Innovation?
    • A series of practical events at which people with ideas on political innovations can meet up with
    • technical experts,
    • journalists,
    • bloggers,
    • politicos
    • and others with an interest in politics and public affairs to grow and promote innovative projects
  • Want to do a session on the day?
    • Firstly, throw your idea into our forum now to see if there’s any interest? http://politicalinnovation.uservoice.com (there are forums for both events there)
    • Come along on the day and pitch the idea to the crowd
    • Attend, introduce, chair, and (ideally) blog your session afterwards
  • Sessions: guidance
    • If you propose a session – do please turn up to it (but see below)
    • If a session does run – can someone record it in some way to share later? Please link to anything you publish on Twitter using the #picamp hashtag.
    • Include everyone (the law of “two ears and one mouth”).
    • If you find yourself in a session, and you’re not learning or sharing – just leave and find somewhere where you can. (the “law of two feet”, and no-one will be offended.)
    • If there’s only two of you in a session and you’re learning and sharing – that’s fine. (However many people are in a session is the right number.)
    • Try to avoid being a ‘seminar’: The best sessions are the ones that spark ongoing action. Try and leave enough time at the end for summarising and organising this.
    • Please avoid party-political soapboxing.
  • How are sessions scheduled?
    • The opening session will allow everyone the opportunity to give
    • a quick personal intro
    • propose sessions that they want to host
    • The rest is a bit of a scramble with post-it notes
