Are you coming to our workshop on devising a new generation of online campaign tools (Beyond Twitter & blogging: 10 tools you need to know and planning the next 10)?
Try and think of an app or site that would help hold the government or companies to account, or help people protest and campaign. We’ve got a wiki to help gather suggestions – and you can use it to add your own ideas ahead of the session.
Or just bring your ideas along to the workshop – there will be iphone/browser templates to scribble on and plenty of inspiration!
No, not like that… We mean we’ve allocated all the tickets. We’re hoping we can free up a few more, so watch this space and Twitter to see if any more go on sale soon.
Sorry if this means you didn’t manage to get in! We’re hoping to video as much as we can to upload after the event, and we’ll hopefully have a bunch of livebloggers in attendance too, for news of what’s happening.
Are you coming to Netroots UK this weekend? We’ve crammed so much in that we’re keen to make the most of it for everyone who’s not able to make it on the day.
Would you be willing to volunteer to video a workshop session for us? We’ve got the main hall plenaries and workshops covered and will be uploading a full video record of happenings there as soon as we can, but that still leaves loads of workshops unfilmed, and loads of useful knowledge and discussion unarchived.
If you’ve a video camera capable of recording a session (and ideally a tripod), would you be willing to be a video volunteer? Take a recording of the session and then give us a copy afterwards and we’ll get it uploaded to this site afterwards to make a lasting record of the learning from the day.
If you’re able, please get in touch with us, to say which of the sessions you’re interested in covering, and we’ll reserve you a front row seat!
PRESS RELEASE: 22 Dec 2010. For immediate release
2011 will be a crucial year for the many individuals and organisations determined to protest and mobilise public support against the government’s programme of public spending cuts.
The broad scope of the cuts, and their severity will have a catastrophic effect on most of the causes and issues at the heart of progressive campaigns. To help activists and organisations learn from each other and form broad-based alliances to better resist the cuts, an event – Netroots UK – is being organised in central London early next year.
