The Fresh Egg blog
Latest digital marketing news
On Thursday 7 February we gathered in Firefox (one of Fresh Egg’s chief meeting rooms) to stage a hack day filled with ideas and Creme Eggs for #wewillgather. For anyone who hasn’t had the chance to be part of a hack day yet, they are days devoted to encouraging a group to share innovative ideas and utilise each other’s skills, be it writing code or writing schedules. Organise one at your office – they’re good fun!
Ever wanted to start an action in your community, like a clean-up or a fundraising event, but didn’t know how or where to find people to help you? This is where #wewillgather comes in. Set up by Dan Thompson, the man behind #RiotCleanup after the 2011 UK riots, #wewillgather provides a platform for people to start positive actions in their local communities, and makes it easy for anyone to join in and help complete such projects.
We welcomed a collaboration of creative and technical minds. Gatherers came from as far as Margate to brainstorm, hack and drink tea – one of #wewillgather’s trademarks. Never one to miss out on the action, Fresh Egg had a team on board, made up of developers, social strategists and project managers. Everyone involved ended the day full of inspiration from the great ideas that were shared.
Some of the changes to the site have already gone live, but keep tuned over the next few weeks for further developments. Head over to the #wewillgather website to find out more about the project, get involved with a live action or start your own good thing today!
