e-Festival of Ideas

Vibewire’s wonderful online youth conference, e-Festival of Ideas, opens this week. I feel privileged to have been invited to contribute to the e-Festival as a guest panelist on the topic of ‘Social Media Making a Change?’

We’ll be looking at how social media can drive social change; how online media tools and applications impact poverty, climate change, unemployment or violence and if they do how can we truly measure it. As well as the important question of whether or not social media users exist in a bubble of their conversations with each other. 

I’m in great company, as Tasha Judd and Stacey Monk will also be contributing to the week’s discussions and debates. Click the shiny red lightblub below to join in with the e-Festival.

    Would it be possible to work with you to creatively enhance the existing
    success of your organisation through innovatively using and enhancing
    your existing services? Who should I talk to about this? For example…

    1. Creating self sustaining locations http://www.barcampbar.org

    2. May I propose a way (http://www.Traidmark.org)
    to create an additional USP that will benefit* your company by creating
    the cumulative mass needed to make your business a success by donating
    100% of your companies Net profit to innovative charitable work.

    *Increased goodwill with the financial benefits that lead to rapid
    growth which causes a rapid increase in profit which leads to an
    increase in performance related pay for all involved.
