Folks, the Nonprofit 2.0 Unconference is back, and I’m keynoting this year alongside Majora Carter, who’s the real deal. Nonprofit 2.0 is DC’s only Unconference dedicated to the social cause space.
Here’s some info about the conference according to co-founder, Allyson Kapin, who also happens to be part of the craigconnects team:
“Nonprofit 2.0’s more than just a conference on the next generation web. It’s a next generation conference in format. Have you ever gone to a conference just for a keynote, but the workshops weren’t up to par? Nonprofit 2.0 delivers the best of keynotes and workshops, offering keynotes led by innovative nonprofit campaigners, thought leaders, and strategists in the space, but in an unconference way, with no PowerPoints, 15 minute leads, and open questions and dialogue to give a voice to everyone.”
Following the keynote sessions, Nonprofit 2.0 shifts into a full-on Unconference with workshops facilitated by DC’s brightest minds strategizing for social change.
What’s an Unconference? Well, you start with a blank wall and, in less than an hour, with a facilitator guiding the process attendees create a full day, multi-track conference agenda that is relevant and inspiring to everyone in the room. All are welcome to put forward presentations or propose conversations that you’d like to have with others and:
- questions you want answered;
- information you want to share/present;
- a project you would like help on;
As people register, the conference organizers will be posting proposed topics on their blog.
Last year’s event sold out pretty early, so get your tickets now, if you’re able, and don’t miss out. You can use comp code nptech for 10% off registration fees.
As I mentioned, I’ll be keynoting this year with Majora Carter, one of the biggest activists and disruptors tackling urban revitalization in communities that are often ignored. The smart Craig Newmark will be talking about the non-traditional business philosophy of “doing well by doing good,” and my belief in the advantage of “bottom-up” grassroots action.
I’ve heard that Majora will discuss her journey, message, and vision to revitalize communities that are forgotten. Her TED talk on Greening the Ghetto is the important stuff.
Join us on June 26thth at SEIU for what promises to be a 4th sold out unconference. Folks, this is the real deal, and tickets are just $45. Plus, I can get you 10% off with the comp code nptech. It’s not altruism, it just feels right.
And, please note that any net proceeds will be donated to a local charity.
