Triangulating the OpenGov and Social Innovation Communities
Thursday, June 26th, 2014
The open government and social innovation communities have a lot in common - so we’ve decided to bring them closer together.
As of today, the OpenGov Hub and the Centre for Social Innovation are teaming up to provide traveling workspace for their members across all locations. Individuals and organizations working out of the OpenGov Hub’s Washington, DC or Kathmandu, Nepal spaces, or any of the Centre’s locations in Toronto or New York City, can now benefit from a number of free workday passes at each other’s community spaces.
Based on the great karma and connections we’ve been able to cultivate at the OpenGov Hub with our 29 groups in Washington and 5 groups in Nepal, we’re excited to see what further connections, collaboration, and inspiration we can gain from the Centre’s members in New York City and Toronto. And to boot: we’re looking forward to hanging out at each other’s very cool digs!
More about our communities:
The OpenGov Hub physically collocates historically distinct but like-minded communities of practice under a single shared physical workspace in downtown Washington, DC and Kathmandu, Nepal. The OpenGov Hub is the day-to-day home to a range of people and organizations working on the open government agenda while also serving as a community gathering point for open government learning and networking activities.
The Centre for Social Innovation is a social enterprise with a mission to catalyze social innovation with locations in Toronto and New York City. It is a coworking space, community, and launchpad for people who are changing the world –providing members with the tools they need to accelerate their success and amplify their impact. Together, the Centre is building a movement of nonprofits, for-profits, entrepreneurs, artists, and activists working across sectors to create a better world.
