social media week – barcampnfp workshop

SMW barcampnfp 2013

This week we held a barcampnfp workshop as part of Social Media Week. A group of around 50 people from across the non-profit sector and digital industry came together to work out the next big things for doing good using social media.

We came up with a ton of good, bad and ugly examples of social for good campaigns. I particularly remember this campaign by Refuge which featured a beauty blogger highlighting domestic abuse and the Trial by timeline example from Amnesty.

Moving on from the shared inspiration we started to hive mind ideas for how to achieve real world impact using social media – putting aside any silos that might currently exist. Naturally, we could have carried on for much longer… but here’s a few of the things we came up with.

Plus here’s a storify of the day.
