Launching Virtual NetSquared Local: Attend Net2 Local Events Anywhere in the World!

Claire Sale's picture

Every month, the NetSquared Community comes together offline at NetSquared Local events around the world to mix, swap stories and ideas, build new relationships, and collaborate to help the local community. Increasingly, these groups have been sharing their events around the globe via streaming of audio and/or video. After seeing how successful these events have been, we’ve created a Meetup page to make it easier for you to learn about and attend these virtual events.

Introducing Virtual NetSquared Local

Virtual NetSquared Local is the place to go to attend NetSquared Local events online - via livestream or video recording. The conversations that happen at these events can be of value not just locally and in-person, but globally and online as well! With this in mind, we invite NetSquared Local groups to post their event media online to share with a wider global audience. All events are free of cost and open to anyone with an internet connection.

We hope that these events will help bring information and connections for people who are interested in using technology for social good, but don’t have a NetSquared Local group in their local area.

Get involved

To learn more about Virtual NetSquared Local events and to sign up simply go to meetup.com/VirtualNet2 and join the group. You will then receive an email every time a new event has been posted.  The hashtag for sharing ideas and connecting with other participants is #VirtualNet2.

Live Link Ups Can #Fail

This initiative is an experiment for us in terms of building the NetSquared Local community, and there is always the possibility of failure. Please bear with us!

What do you think?

We’re still experimenting with Virtual NetSquared Local to make it as accessible and useful to you as possible. What do you think of us using the meetup platform in this unconventional way? How can we improve this program to fit your needs? Share your answers and questions via the #VirtualNet2 hashtag, in the comments below, or via email at Net2@techsoup.org.
