Help Haiti - Evert Bopp sent us this

Following my recent (short) presentation on Haiti & emergency communications at the Dublin Ignite event (see above) I have decided to give a number of public presentations on Haiti Connects work and on the role of technology in disaster aid & recovery in general. The purposes of the talks are two-fold; I want to raise awareness of the ongoing situation in Haiti and raise support for our work so that we can continue our work there.

The presentations will focus on the ongoing humanitarian disaster in Haiti, the 2010 earthquake, Haiti Connects response and work in the last 14 months and our future projects.

It will also highlight the growing role of Open Source technology & Online media in disaster response.

The talks will be free to attend but there will be an option to donate during or after the event.
