About the Webinar
Meet Michael Silberman, Greenpeace’s Global Director of Digital Mobilization, for an interactive training on how environmentally-conscious citizens can participate in Online Mobilization.
Michael will show us how Greenpeace uses computers, tablets, mobile phones and e-mail in a highly connected digital age to activate a global force of more than 20 million online supporters and activists in nearly 50 countries.
Join us to learn the step-by-step process it takes to create a global online mobilization movement for Greenpeace campaigns like our recent push to protect the Arctic. Michael will provide insight on the groundbreaking work Greenpeace is doing on the web and explain the evolution of online mobilization from the Howard Dean presidential campaign to today.
We will be broadcasting live from Greenpeace’s offices in Washington, DC.
