Reflecting on where we’ve been and where we’re going (VIDEO)

Hard to believe it’s been six months since my Web of Change 2012 journey ended with a mad dash to the seaplane. Would’ve been nice to stroll through Cortes Islands’ old growth forest instead, letting the wisdom and warm fuzzies sink in slowly.

“Our Coolest Campaigns Ever”: Inspiration from WOC

Rainforest Action Network

Innovation is the most challenging type of work to be involved in. By nature, it pushes you out of you comfort zones and into an exploration of the unknown. There's great risk, but also great reward.

Web of Change deserves a lot of credit for pushing both myself and my organization to be far more innovative, creative and bold in our online advocacy. Thanks to this community, Rainforest Action Network has launched some of the most effective campaigns in our history.

Privilege vs Change at District 319


Vancouver’s technologists, social change activists and concerned citizens witnessed a superb presentation by Web of Changer Favianna Rodriguez last night at District 319 for our 2009 Kick Off event. Highlighting her first hand experience in social entrepreneurship, activism, tech, and the arts, Favi gave a compelling speech that challenged everyone in attendance to take a hard look at prevailing attitudes on equality and see new ways to take down barriers in their own lives and work.

Principles of Effective Online Communication in Web 2.0

During STT 2008, Jon Warnow presented on the key factors every campaigner needs to consider in developing effective online communications. Here are the highlights from his presentation.

It's All About the Numbers

Of course, social change and social media is not 'all about the numbers'. One of the defining qualities of the web2.0 world is its power to break free from the dehumanizing numbers game of one-way communications and embrace a genuine dialogue between you and your audience.

That aside, anyone who has fought the hard battle of culture change that's often necessary with open communications knows that the process can be much easier when you can show that the numbers work in your favour.

Opening Up Leadership at Open Everything

Since its inception in 2001, Web of Change has evolved from a yearly retreat to a series of community building conferences organized by Communicopia. Web of Change brings together tech-savvy social change leaders to hone their skills, connect with other leaders, and refresh their passion for work, change, and innovation.
