We’re crowdsourcing ideas for our Strategic Plan and we’d love to hear yours!
To coincide with our upcoming 2nd birthday on 8 December, we’ve released our Draft Strategic Plan and shared it as a Google Doc. To capture your ideas and feedback we’ve created a Google Doc Feedback Form.
We will publicly acknowledge all who participated when we publish the final strategic plan.
To help build resilient communities empowered with the knowledge to use social media to prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies.
What we believe
We believe that together we can help create a world where during emergencies and disasters, communities use social media to save their own lives and the lives of others.
- Where emergency services use social media to issue alerts and warnings
- Where emergency services engage with the community as partners
- Where the community is prepared, including people with a disability
- Where digital volunteers from across the globe provide ‘information aid’ during and after disasters
- Where the community helps the community recover
- Checkout our future scenarios for what this could look like in action.
Who we are
The Emergency 2.0 Wiki is a nonprofit driven entirely by volunteers. Our volunteers form a global, online, collaborative community of professionals and organisations drawn from emergency services, government, NGO’s, business, health, education and media, sharing their knowledge to help create resilient communities.
- Become financially & operationally viable
- Increase participation & collaboration
- Increase reach
- Increase content
Timeframe: Sunday 8 December (AEDT)
The Draft Strategic Plan is open for your ideas and feedback via the Feedback Form for two weeks. The deadline is Sunday 8 December (AEDT). Please share this post with people you believe could add value to this process. It takes a global community to maintain the Emergency 2.0 Wiki, so we are looking forward to your ideas. Thank you in advance!
