A one day event to help network and inspire progressive activists working on the web.
Saturday 8 January 2011, Congress Centre, Central London
Netroots UK brought together over 500 digital activists in central London for a day of workshops, discussions and networking activity. The day sought to support activists in four main ways:
- Hear from innovative and effective campaigns in other fields.
- Make useful contacts with key people and organisations.
- Get practical training in digital techniques and technologies.
- Take part in the debate on the future of UK activism.
The day featured keynote speakers and discussions (see programme), as well as many workshops, aimed at all levels of activists, and plenty of opportunity for networking outside the organised sessions.
Attendees included campaigners from the worlds of politics, environment, development, civil liberties, unions, community groups and many more.
