In the age of social networks, citizen media and digital collaboration, #OSJUBA seeks to apply the means and tools of creative open source culture to post-conflict development. #OSJUBA hosts their first event on June 21, 2012 in Berlin to mobilise free culture, accessible technologies and hacktivist communities in creating a vision for the new capital of South Sudan.
