On October 1-2, the U.S. Embassy in Sweden and the Tällberg Foundation invite participants from Norway, Sweden, and Denmark to a TechCamp in Malmø.

TechCamps are workshops which have been held by the U.S. Department of State and its partners all over the world since 2011. This is the first one to be held in Scandinavia. The goal of TechCamp is to create strategies and solutions to local challenges using low-cost, easy-to implement technological tools.

This TechCamp will focus on engaging youth and diverse audiences. The workshop is interactive and will feature tools and best practices from news outlets in the U.S. and Europe which are at the forefront of new digital innovation and have succeeded in engaging with these demographics.

The instructors are American and European experts in their field. The best participants are those with a desire to get practical training and brainstorm solutions to shared problems. Journalists, activists, researchers, bloggers, social entrepreneurs or representatives from NGOs are good candidates.

TechCamp is FREE! Travel, hotel accommodation, meals and the seminar fee are covered by the U.S. Embassy in Sweden and the Tällberg Foundation. (Those who wish to pay for their own travel, hotel and meals, may do so).
