We are forming a global network of informed development practitioners who provide an informed critique of public institutionsThe Development Circle believes that via innovation and collaborative effort, the development sector can continue to increase its impact as a positive change agent within their own community and others.
Definition of success:
Once we have a network of grass-roots movements in several countries who are healthy, vibrant and engaging meaningfully with enterprise and government - shaping the new political paradigm.
What makes your project innovative?:
Purposeful networks will be essential to the future grass-roots lead movements - which there are plenty at the moment. However, we must transcend activism and start to provide constructive input into the public arena. Let's shape the future public development policy of Australia and the world, ourselves!
What do you need help with?:
Currently the Australian network is housed in seperate websites (Sydney - sdc.groupsite.com and Brisbane - thedevelopmentcircle.com.au). We are attempting to build a new social media based site to enable effective communication across the network at TheDevelopmentCircle.com and would love some people to help out polishing this site off so we can launch it. So, in brief, if you have experience in wordpress, buddypress and/or PHP we would love to hear from you!
Area of interest:
