Life after GovCamp Scotland… Making the Digital Participation Charter come alive for Scotland’s citizens, communities and businesses


GovCamp Scotland held at the University of Edinburgh’s splendid JMCC Conference Centre, was first convened in November 2011. We promised then that the event would not be an end in itself and we are delighted to say that we have kept that promise.

Feedback on the event itself is very encouraging with over 88% of those surveyed said that they definitely intended to be actively involved after the event in improving digital participation in Scotland.

There are now 28 founding signatories to the Digital Participation Charter, covering a spectrum of private, public and third sector organisations. The signatories are considering how best to work together to fulfil the purpose of the Charter over the lifetime of the Scottish Parliament.

We are not an exclusive club and other organisations and individuals who share our passion to drive up digital participation rates may wish and are welcome to join us as partners.
