Convene

 

Convene is a platform for social innovators.

The network promotes the use of Free/Open Source Software (FOSS) to meet tech-based needs of social development organisations.

Online, members can develop their ideas and projects through a supportive and collaborative network of peers. Informal learning and local adaptation of initiatives are the focus.

On-the-ground, through international workshops, Convene educates social groups, teachers, students, human rights bodies and civil rights groups about the value of Free/Open Source Software.
