IWD#15 event for high schools at QUT 11.3.15

You've heard how devastating Ebola is, and other than donating lots of money or jumping on a plane with your medical degree in hand, how can you help? You can be a digital humanitarian! Humanitarianism brings up images of war torn middle east, helping flood victims in Haiti, or battling Ebola in Africa.

Once upon a time you had to work for the United Nations or the World Bank to help save the world.... but now...you can do it from your laptop while sitting on the sofa! Seriously! Join us to learn how YOU can become an active Digital Humanitarian!

You know how crowdsourcing is how Wikipedia builds knowledge, well we work with the United Nations to use crowds to map parts of the world in crisis that need our help. Come and learn new things, meet inspiring people and have fun!

Also launching the 2015 Search for the Next Tech Girl Superhero. This event is supported by ACSW and Digital Careers and will be facilitated by Dr Jenine Beekhuyzen. Register today here.
