Though this is not a full on camp, it is part of our larger series to build the Net Squared community here in Honolulu. There is an burgeoning social media, tech, open data, startup and programmer community here in and to a lesser degree on some of the other islands. We are reaching out to each of these groups for support and mentorship as we form NetSquared Honolulu. Our next event will coincide with NetSquared Vancouver on September 11th. We will be joining via video. It will be 3:00 in the afternoon here, so we are inviting representatives from nonprofits to participate during the work day as part of their professional development.
Directly afterward we are workshopping what we have learned with our memebrs to help three area food security nonprofits improve in areas that they define for us. Meals on Wheels, Lanakila and the Hawaii Food Bank are being invited to share their challenges and opportunities. The idea is that this event will serve as the launch for a sustained member engagement around food security through the end of the year. We hope to get working groups together for each org.
