ISDE5 - NextNow and Planetwork
March 21, 2007
Members of the ISDE5 planning team met at the wonderful offices of NextNow in Berkeley. In attendance was Jim Fournier, founder of Planetwork, who lent a hand in reviewing and discussing the event logistics and goals. Jim brought a wealth of hands-on knowledge.
Planetwork explores how the creative application of digital tools – visualization technologies, software, and the Internet, among others – can open new possibilities for positive global change.
Planetwork operates as a convening organization, gathering people from a wide variety of disciplines and vocations – science, technology, activism, business, the arts - creating international forums where people from distinctly different backgrounds can meet, find common ground, inspire each other, wrestle with and envision answers to solving some of our most pressing global issues.
