Twitter Chat: We Want to Hear From You
Are you using mobile apps for social change? Do you have a Twitter account?
Join us for a Twitter chat series on mobile for social impact in September!
Every Friday from September 12th, we will be exploring topics related to using mobile apps for community organizing and social change. Check in with us at the following hashtags on Twitter on Fridays from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. PDT, no RSVPs are necessary!
Friday, September 12th: Mobile App Development for the Social Sector - #apps4impact
Friday, September 19th: Launching SMS Programs for Social Impact - #sms4impact
Friday, September 26th: Using Mobile Geolocation for Nonprofit Data Gathering - #geo4impact
These Tweet chats are part of ZeroDivide’s forthcoming Mobile for Impact series, which has been generously supported by the Vodafone Foundation. The Mobile for Impact series explores key issues in the design, funding, deployment and evaluation of nonprofit and public sector projects that use mobile technology to achieve social impact.
This series builds upon ZeroDivide’s prior Vodafone Foundation-supported research, “Funding Mobile Strategies for Social Impact," which found a dearth of awareness and financial support for mobile-based interventions among U.S.-based philanthropies, compared to a more innovative international sector. This new work provides U.S. philanthropy and nonprofits with more comprehensive information about the field of mobile for social impact to increase support for new projects in this area.
We’ll post Storify summaries of each chat on our social media accounts and blog so you won’t miss a thing if you can’t participate.
If you’ve never been to a Tweet chat before, reach out to us with your questions on Twitter: @zerodivideorg and with the hashtag #mobileimpact.
