At the end of June, ISEAL held its Annual General Meeting, where our members were able to participate in a variety of exciting workshops and provide input into ISEAL’s activities.
During the Open Plenary session, ISEAL’s Technical Director Patrick Mallet presented ISEAL’s forthcoming Online Community to those present, including delegates from such member organisations as Rugmark, the Forest Stewardship Council and the Alliance for Water Stewardship.
ISEAL’s Online Community is intended to provide a hub for member-member communication, and will be a place where ISEAL staff can provide training, capacity building and where members can easily access a volume of resources in various formats, including video and audio.
On Wednesday, myself and Communications Manager Wiebke Herding and Alison Kriscenski of the Forest Stewardship Council presented two workshops on Building Online Communities to our members.
These workshops, which ran for three hours total, also discussed how to run online consultations and use online tools for good.
This week, ISEAL staff will be testing the Online Community, which is currently at the beta stage.
