Turn on the internet next Thursday night (29 November 6.30am GMT) and you’ll get a chance to hear about four great projects making the world a better place from Australia and New Zealand.
Presentations from four meet-ups, being run simultaneously, will be broadcast live. We’ll be taking questions in person and via chat. Tune in via You Tube Live (via http://www.connectingup.org/net2downunder) or signup to the NetSquared Virtual meetup.
Our presenters are showcasing some world-changing ideas from the following four cities:
Adelaide - Evan, Our World Today Our World Today is a news organisation aiming to redefine what the world sees as news media. They aim to generate meaningful topics for discussion and reflect a news agenda that inspires our readers and members to positively change the world around them.
Wellington - Jon, Loomio Loomio is an online tool for collaborative decision-making, enabling all people to have a say in decisions that affect them in all aspects of life – in their community, their workplace, and the world.
Melbourne - Will, Clarity Engine Clarity Engine is a new online giving platform to help charities market themselves to younger audiences, provide a simple way to transfer money to charities and also connect with other users.
Auckland - Will, Global Poverty Project (GPPNZ) The Global Poverty Project aims to increase the number and effectiveness of people taking action on extreme poverty.
We’ve already got over 60 people registered to attend in-person, and there’ still room. It’ll be a fun night and we’ll be learning as we go. I’m sure we’ll have some lessons to share with other Net2-ers.
If you are in this part of the world, you’re welcome to come along, or sign-in online.
