Events

We aim to help civil society organisations harness the full potential of web and mobile technologies.  To do this, we are working to weave a network of practice that connects civil society groups and technologists through a combination of live events, training, 1-to-1 project support and online collaborations, delivered in ways that support peer learning and sharing.
