Manchester Net Squared (#mcrn2) brings together social changemakers and web innovators to network, socialise and share ideas.

It's about how nonprofits and social benefit organisations* can use the web for social change.

We organise two things:

  • Meetups are free monthly gatherings that focus on a use of technology for social change.  These are held at the MadLab in central Manchester and generally involve someone giving a talk or demo, plus some discussion and learning.
  • Social Media Surgeries are free monthly events for those in need of hands-on advice and tips.  People come along to help give advice to local charities and community projects.

Whether you work for a charity or non-proft, within the digital sector, or both - mcrn2 is here to help bring together like-minds.

Alongside Manchester Net Squared, there are over 80 groups across the world.

Net Squared is an facilitated by TechSoup Global, a nonprofit that helps other nonprofits and public libraries get the technology resources they need to operate at their full potential..

* charities, campaigners, coops, social enterprises, etc and onwards...
