We are delighted to announce that this year’s Open Government Data
Camp and Open Knowledge Conference are joining to form a week-long
celebration: the *Open Knowledge Festival*!

This pioneering event will include an action-packed week of lectures,
seminars, workshops, hackathons, coding jams, and interactive sessions
that will bring together individuals and organizations from a wide

Join us in Helsinki, Finland on 17-22 of September 2012 for a week of
open knowledge and global inspiration.


The 2012 theme of OKFestival is *Open Knowledge in Action*. We will
focus on the /value/that can be generated by opening up knowledge, the
ecosystems of organisations that benefit from and participate in
sharing, and the impact that open knowledge can have in our societies.
What kinds of new professions, ideas and community initiatives can
emerge within our governments, markets, networks and neighbourhoods as

collaboration, new workshop formats and new forms of participation.
We’ll bring together civil society representatives, programmers, data
wranglers, designers, students, members of government and local
communities for a week of building new things and sharing great ideas.


We have *two submission deadlines*this Spring based on our venue
capacity at the *Aalto University School of Arts, Design and
Architecture*in Helsinki. We suggest applying as soon as possible in
order to ensure adequate venue space, support and funding for your

smart cities, sustainability etc.
