MobileActive08: Unlocking the Potential of Mobile Technology for Social Impact

MobileActive08 will take place from 13-15 October 2008 in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The three-day event convenes key stakeholders that will explore mobile technology in support of social action. At MobileActive08 you will explore how mobile phones are used to advance civil society work, assess the current state of knowledge in the use and effectiveness of mobile technology to advance social action, and investigate trends, needs and investment opportunities.

MobileActive08 is cross-disciplinary as learnings and experiences span various disciplines in this emerging field. However, specific attention will be given to the role of mobile technology in health, human rights, environment, economic development, advocacy, citizen journalism and democratic participation.

MobileActive08 is the only global gathering that is connecting leaders who are working at the convergence of civil society, mobile technology and social change.

If you:

  • have expertise in the field of mobile technology for social development,
  • are a researcher working on mobile technology for social impact, or
  • are a mobile service provider with interest in the social market, then MobileActive08 is for you.

 We needed to refresh our image before our biggest show. I punched up a vendor on Confabb's resources section and found a provider who met our deadline, and my budget.
