A unique chance to combine technology, (web + audio visual) with environmental action. We are building a fundraising site for a local community gardening project. If you have an opinion on what you'd like to see developed in the area - come along and state your case! Tutors will be on hand to lead a series of technical skills workshops to help us develop our own skills in journalistic interview techniques, digital storytelling and social media

This is an opportunity to take part in a really unique mashup That mixes technology with real social change at both a local and global level.

On 10/10/10, is coordinating a collaborative day of action to work on projects that tackle climate change in your community. You can read more about it here: The folks are calling it a Global Work Party (since it involves getting to work & hopefully a celebration!) I've been told, over 1,700 events are already underway, in many of the countries & cities where we have Local groups.

WHY: Should we take part?

Our network gathers it's strength from supporting a wide array of issues & causes. Climate change is something that touches many of the issues we work on: refugees/immigration, health, poverty & humanitarian aid, human rights, social justice, our environment, & much more. The planet is literally heating up, and that's going to greatly impact much of our mission-driven work (& in many places, it already is.) It also provides many opportunities for social entrepreneurs and gives us a great testing ground for collaboration between different groups. Like NetSquared, is a great example of a community-driven organization and the power of connecting online and offline efforts.

This is your chance to participate in making a local community gardening and skills exchange project go global as part of What gets us excited is the chance to produce a really tangible output to our effort as the Net2 London Workparty. This will also be linked into Global discovery day on th same date.

If you have one, bring along your laptop. The venue has Wifi.
