RSVP now
to join over 100 of your peers to learn how to put the Principles for
Digital Development into practice in your organization on Thursday, October
12, 2017 in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

The Digital Impact Alliance (DIAL) http://www.digitalimpactalliance.org/,
steward for the Principles, is now promoting their adoption around the
world. We invite you to the first event, held Thursday, October 12, 2017 in
Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Join your peers and colleagues for a FREE conference
with an exciting mix of educational keynotes, lightning talks, and
interactive group sessions, to learn how you can live the Digital
Principles every day too.

Leading organizations are putting the Digital Principles into practice
already, finding innovations and gaining efficiencies that are inspiring a
new way to implement development projects. Our discussions will be guided
by thought leaders from organizations in East Africa.

This event will be the first in a three-part series organized by DIAL,
focusing on sharing innovations directly from implementers and practical
guidance on the Digital Principles. Join us in Dar es Salaam to dive deep
into three of the nine Principles – Be Collaborative, Design with the User,
and Understand the Ecosystem.

Will there be any kind of online content generated at this event, for people who aren’t able to attend in person?


Appreciate the question - I’m prepping a whole post on this for tomorrow, but short answer is yes!

You can watch the end-of-day sessions (Tanzania is five hours ahead of EST and eight hours ahead of the West Coast) livestreamed on Facebook so that fellow practitioners from all over the world can participate with us. It will be on our event page here: http://bit.ly/PrinciplesLiveTZ

The video will be archived and linked on here on the forum. We will follow up with an exact agenda and times tomorrow for the livestream.

Also, on Twitter, during the event, we will be using the hashtag #DigitalPrinciples to capture thoughts, comments, questions, and reflections. Join us there.


Very cool! Not sure if I can watch live but will definitely get the replay if not. Thanks!
