It's Mobile World Congress week, and we'll be focusing this month on Mobile for Development and Humanitarian response.
Our guest speaker, Brendan McDonald, will share some of his experiences while Head of the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in Lybia.
Brendan will notably explain how he activated a community of online activists and volunteers including the Standby Volunteer Task Force, the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap and Crisis Commons to help us sort a huge amount of information being shared online from inside Libya back in 2011.
For more information on Brendan and his work back then: http://7piliers.com/blog1/lets-talk-about-digital-humanitarianism
Join us at 7 pm for a 30 minute humanitarian power talk and then stay for networking with fellow development professionals.

Looking forward to seeing you all Thursday.
