How did 4 million people organize themselves to protest against FARC in Colombia? How did a presidential campaign raise $6.2 million in one day?
How did 40,000 people come together for a nationwide cleanup day in Estonia?
Through the use of social media and collaborative tools.
These online tools are changing the way people communicate and work together. How can organizers, entrepreneurs, activists, and do-gooders leverage the social web to aid their efforts?
Local social media experts Joey Mornin and Brett Horvath (Pickens Plan, Facebook online voter registration application) and faculty from the University of Washington will offer insight into the changing online landscape, and provide case studies of how activists and entrepreneurs have successfully leveraged social media. The seminar will be a collective brainstorming session to share ideas, tell stories, and think about how to get your message out into the digital age.
Complimentary refreshments will be provided.
