Hello world!

Welcome to Netroots UK. This is the site for a new conference and networking event, aimed at linking up the UK’s progressive online activists.

There’s loads of passionate and effective activist work going on in this country, from campaigning organisations and enterprising individuals, using the power of the web to make the UK and the world a better place. We think it could be even better if we learned more from each other, and were able to make better links between people with great experience and people with great ideas.

Are you a blogger, a tweeter, a compulsive clicker, a coder, a designer, an grizzled veteran or a keen novice? Are you an environmentalist, a trades unionist, a tax justice campaigner, a political footsoldier, a charity volunteer, a community organiser? You’re one of us, and we’d love to meet you.

Over the coming weeks, we’ll be outlining much more about the event we’re organising on 9th January 2011, and we need you to get involved too. Let us have your thoughts about what we should be planning, or what you’d like to see.
