The third Annual " European Network Revolution"
How can non-profit Organisations use the Internet?
23 - 25 August, Amsterdam

In collaboration with the European Internet Seminars Association in co-operation with ISOC, Dutch Chapter and Van Dusseldorp & Partners BV.

Internet has turned into an important communication and business medium for millions of users in Europe. With the growing experience of the user, the development of and demand for sophisticated services grow as well. Audio and video to support "text only" information, interactive services to engage the user and e-commerce offerings have developed in the "for profit" world over the past years. Now it is the turn of the non-profit sector to turn their websites into interactive media, with which new audiences can be reached and new fundraising streams will be generated.

This seminar aims to give a clear overview of the opportunities the Internet has to offer to non-profit organisations - both large and small ones. The seminar will focus on recent Internet and broadband developments in Europe, and will include sessions on fundraising via the Internet, developing alternative media channels and workshops on website development and communications strategies. Lectures and workshops will be given by experienced practitioners. Not only will the seminar be a showcase of what is possible on the Internet, but will also give in-depth information on how to implement new technologies and how one can afford them.

All lectures, presentations and debates will be in English.
