This panel features four sustainable organizations that have figured out how to channel individuals into real action more efficiently. In Cool Town Studio's case it's working potential buyers into co-designing beta communities or businesses on the front end to be
sustainable and more user-centric; with Global Giving it's connecting individuals directly with overseas development projects, with Network
for Good it's connecting individuals with nonprofits and each other using peer to peer fundraising, and Care2.com is connecting
individuals with other individuals and nonprofits based on their interests in social and environmental issues and causes.
And best of all meet and greet like minded blended value professionals at the top of the hour networking reception starting at 6pm. Social entrepreneurs, social marketers, nonprofit communicators, and corporate social responsible professionals.
