some interesting cases from Ukraine (would be updated further more)

2. Could tell me, what's your idea to use social media to engage people in this online platform - first to bring them here, and them make them use it on a longer term? How do you make connections with people most effectively in your country? (We know people are used to face to face meetings, but we still want them to use this online platform for dialogue). - See more at: https://edgeryders.eu/en/comment/17099#comment-17099
2. As to the people's engagement within the platform, good ideas would be to create webinars and video conferences with follow up discussions. Would be great to establish social media groups and great interesting cases forwarded via posts within the social media community. Good idea is to make some short video as to the projects and enhance discussions (a la kickstarter page, with description of the project, some videos of the projects, some video conferences for those interested to partner, contribute or being involved. Good enough would be to establish separate section that will include news, interesting articles and reports or researchers on social programs, activities or enhancement of needed skills, expertise for the social project development. It can be a separate media project for social projects functions, skills, news within the platform (with interesting video reports, video/online text discussions etc
I would be happy to discuss these ideas and more via skype and email. Mine is: nataliegryvnyak, and email firstname.lastname@example.org. My phone is 0503310124
Would be excited to introduce you various Ukrainian initiatives, and attract fascinating people throughout many countries, as well as support the project with new enhancement ideas to keep the platform up as a potential social projects incubator, lobby opportunity for those seeking to speak up and create something.
