Livable Memphis, in partnership with Launch Memphis and the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis – Memphis Branch, invites you to our 5th Annual Summit for Neighborhood Leaders and GovCamp to explore how government and communities are using technology to create more livable cities.

The morning summit, Using Technology to Connect Cities and Communities, will focus of how technology is being used:

·         by cities to connect with residents and collect data;

·         by citizens to connect community members to each other and issues

·         to create tools for making cities more livable.

The afternoon GovCamp will preview the City of Memphis available public data, and give participants a chance to prioritize what data sets should be released and brainstorm about what kinds of tools can be created to make that data accessible to the public.

.Gov 2.0 Camp is your chance to change the way government interacts with its citizens! 
Governments across the country have been making data sets open and available to all citizens, and we’d like to bring that trend to Memphis.
So what does that mean to you? It means the potential for data. Lots of data. All of this data will be available for innovative citizens do some extraordinary things with! 
So what are some cool things the City of Memphis and its citizens can do with all this information?
