Haiti Connect & NUI Galway hold Irelandís first Crisiscamp!

NUI Galway's Discipline of Information Technology will be hosting Irelandís first CrisisCamp on Sunday 26 February. It is being organised with Haiti Connect, a charitable trust based in Co. Galway. Crisiscamps are a series of global events organised by members of CrisisCommons a global community of volunteers from technology, crisis response organizations, government agencies, and individuals that are working together to build and use ICT technology tools to help respond to disasters and improve resiliency and response before a crisis.
