Plans for organizing Meetups and creating local chapters

Hi Gina, great that you want to start a meetup chapter! Did you know we already have more than 20 meetup groups? Unfortunately they are a bit fragmented, as each group was erected as independent initiative.

Our recent announcement of future plans includes action to change that. On our community website (under construction) there will be a dedicated section for each group and an aggregate calender to track and present events.

Furthermore there will be a common branding, coordinated activities (like Hackathons), promotion via our Awareness Program and the option for each group to have a separate home on the website e.g. at

Face-to-face meetups will be a great tool in our arsenal to create a tight-knit community, and to put forward most inspiration and creativity in the field of Humane Technology. We will be focusing on reporting back from meetup sessions, recording webinars for our social media channels, and exchange ideas in the community and between groups.

Besides this we will be looking at cooperating with to make this even better.

You can help us bring this about quicker, if you are interested?
