digital [x] working group launched with first meeting!

We are happy to announce that the digital [x] working group of CDN has launched with our very first meeting on Jun-17th! This meeting was dedicated to getting to know each other and finding out what our expectations for this year are.

We discussed how we want to organise future work and which tools to use for the team’s communication and cooperation on digital [x] projects. While we are still in process of brainstorming what projects we want to work on, we agreed to focus our attention on a few initiatives, instead of trying out many different things.

So far among the proposed ideas is setting-up a technical-assistance network for young Green organisations that can help with technical matters as well as issues such as open source software, privacy, encryption etc. The second proposal is to organise a seminar on a topic that is still to be defined during the next meetings. The spirit at the meeting was a bit nerdy and very positive, and we are all very much looking forward to getting this new venture rolling and having a long, productive and fun cooperation!

PS: The gender balance was far better than on the above picture.
