Harrisonburg Summits are opportunities for hundreds of people and organizations to come together to discuss issues related to an important theme or issue facing the Harrisonburg-Rockingham area.
A summit is a scheduled event that brings together partner organizations and citizens for a combination of discussions, workshops, brainstorming, and education. Information is exchanged, partnerships are formed, projects are created and strengthened, and relationships are formed.
In the beginning of each summit, participants create a schedule with dozens of breakout sessions and are then free to join the conversations of most interest to them. This process is called Open Space Technology.
Summit proceedings and reports are captured during the event, and posted online at HarrisonburgSummits.com in real time, creating an interactive online archive of discussions.
HarrisonburgSummits.com is operated by the Community Mediation Center in Harrisonburg, VA. Originally, HarrisonburgSummits.com was used by Mayor Kai Degner to share information related to the May 30, 2009, Mayors Sustainability Summit. That event was so successful, that a partnership was formed with the Community Mediation Center to allow more summits to continue on various different topics.
