Net Change Week was an extension of the very successful Social Tech Training held for the first time in 2008. Given the explosion of social technology over the last 5 years, there are many social change organizations and traditional charities that need a hand understanding this terrain. In addition to the training components, the Net Change team thought it important to include events where professionals working online in digital design and interactive spaces could meet change-makers. This bridging of the digital divide was designed to introduce, to inspire and to discover potential synergies that would not otherwise have had the chance to flourish.
There were many highlights for Net Change Week and also many take-aways that will inform an even bigger - even better Net Change Week in 2010.
