This year, WordCamp London will have a Saturday track focused on not-for-profit organisations using WordPress.
This track is open to anyone working in the third sector, NGOs, charities, social enterprises, voluntary organisations, neighbourhood or community groups, hyper-local and micro-enterprise websites. It is being run in association with London Metropolitan University who have a strong record of research and course provision in social entrepreneurship, community and international development – as well as in computer science and web development.
We’re looking for presentations focused on not-for-profit organisations’ use of WordPress. If you work for a charity or build websites for third-sector organisations we’d love you to share your knowledge and experience with the WordCamp audience.
Key questions that we hope to address include:
- How to deliver sustainable web strategies for not-for-profit organisations
- Using WordPress to create platforms for hyper-local and community business models
- How NGOs are using WordPress as part of their approach to information management
- Raising your social enterprise’s profile with a blog
- Using WordPress in a particular segment of the not-for-profit sector – e.g. in arts organisations
- The benefits and costs for not-for-profit organisations using open source software
- How our campaign went from no website at all to a web presence
- A case study on how my not-for-profit organisation uses WordPress
