The secret of mobilizing 34 million people

Monday, June 30, 2014, 4.00 p.m., Room F/G

Hosted by:

34 million people - that's the circulation of the print versions of The New York Times, The Guardian and Der Spiegel combined and multiplied by 10. And that's the number of people the Avaaz activism network empowers week after week to take action on urgent global issues. From transforming one horror story of rape in Kenya into a global outrage to introducing a revolutionary new Internet Constitution in Brazil – the Avaaz community is changing the world every week.

In this workshop, Avaaz campaigners will open their treasure chest and share some of the secrets that allow the Avaaz community to close the gap between citizens and their representatives. You will hear about where Avaaz plans to go next, gain heaps of hands-on experience as to how this community makes change happen so you can leave the room buzzing with new ideas! Though not required, participants are encouraged to bring a laptop, tablet computer or iPad to this interactive workshop.
