Are you an agent of social change? Do you consider yourself an activist and/or a social entrepreneur? Are you involved with a non-profit organization?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you’re invited to Vancouver’s first ever NetSquared Camp. This event, happening on August 14, will bring nonprofits, activists, and social entrepreneurs together with geeks in order to develop practical skills in social media, marketing, communications, design and technology. The event is an “unconference“; it will be a participant-driven conference focusing on the use of technology in affecting change.
Be prepared to bring your thinking caps on as this free, one-day event will focus on practical skill development and peer learning. Bring your questions and professional challenges. and they will be answered by peers and some of Vancouver’s brightest. A wide range of topics will be covered, including managing email lists, using online technology for fundraising, creating YouTube videos to drive traffic to your site, and creating social media strategies. Check out the event’s wiki for more information on the proposed topics.
