"If you’re hosting a call in the next few days, you can try out our video conference platform. It’s early stages, but I think it will eventually be a viable alternative to zoom: http://now.edgeryders.eu
You can create a room simply by going to ‘now.edgeryders.eu/’ + ‘room name’. It supports up to 2000 rooms and 200 participants per call. More on this shortly, but you can feel free to test it out."
I’ll be there!
If I can help with anything let me know,
I don’t know if most people joining would be those who already registered to contribute to the community covid response, but I think what would be useful would be to build small teams around the 3 strands of contributions - hosting calls, supporting projects, sourcing stories.
Many people are doing lonely work these days in front of the computer, but if we could coordinate for small goals - dedicated themed calls, or prioritising 2-3 projects on which collectives work, it would go a long way.
would be helpful pinging people on the list to let them know this is happening?
Nice! Glad that we are getting volunteers.
I can’t join this call til 4:30 today, just a heads up, but will jump on then.
Can’t today - have an Earth OS interview at the same time.
Please on which standard? 5 pm is it the same hour in Tunisia?
It is 5 pm CEST (e.g. Brussels)
Would like to bring up work.edgeryders.eu at the call today!

Topic proposal for the call on Monday, April 6: Webinar building and onboarding
I thought it might be a good time for us to define a nice smooth flow to onboard and coordinate people around the online platform activities/conversations before, during, and after the webinars.
So perhaps it could be a good idea to dedicate the call this monday (6th April) to figuring this out together?
We could over three things:
- start by updating one another on the status of webinars under development.
- Then look at how we have done things in the past, what worked well/less well.
- Explore new options we have (including tools like the custom made registration - account creation and posting forms, live.edgeryders.eu or the new messaging app that Owen is building)
If you have anything you would especially like us to cover, please add them in a comment below!
How we did it in the past:
We have collected quite some feedback after the Academy Webinar, which made a nice follow up that you can see both on the webinar page + the feedback page. This was a webinar to deliver content from practitioners. But if we run webinars meant to open conversations, then I would imagine each quote - see on the Academy right side content roll turned into an engaging post.
Can I unpin this topic now that we have the list with all calls? Do not want to have too many pinned topics.
I am just seeing this. Is it still possible to get involved?
hey, sure - @MariaEuler will be posting a summary from the call we had yesterday online, hopefully tomorrow or the day after.
here they are:
ping @daveed the summary from the last two calls are posted above - let us know what if anything looks interesting to you. If there is something else you have in mind, please do share it - the effort is shaped by the community.
