Join our Google+ Community

SCSTWGoogleCommunityJust shortly after Google+ released their new Communities feature a few months ago, I quickly created a community called ‘Soccer Can Save the World.’

When I created the community, I wasn’t completely sure how I would use it or whether it would even be worthwhile to put in the effort to figure out a way that the community could be helpful for those involved in sport and development.

After a few months of trying it out, I think I’m ready to publicize the community and build up the community so it can be a platform for discussing sport and development.

Some of my plans for the Google+ Community for 2013 include:

* Using the community to share relevant news of interest to soccer and development organizations.

* Using the community to allow those in the field to network and share resources.

* Using the community to host Hangouts which could include any or all of the following:
– A discussion or book club event or series of events
– Q & A with a program leader or manager from a soccer for development organization
– Q & A with consultants who could take questions and give program leaders advice on web development, social media, public relations, etc…

These are just a few off the top of my mind. If you’d like to be involved or have ideas to share, I’d love to hear them.

Again, here’s the link to the Google+ community, ‘Soccer Can Save the World.’ I look forward to meeting you on there and answering any questions you might have.

    Hi Chris! My name is Becky and I founded kidworldcitizen.org. I have 4 kids through birth and adoption and I’m always looking for ways to teach kids about the world. I found your site through pinterest, because I’m going to be writing some articles about the World Cup. Right now I’m working on a collaborative video project.

    I’m asking my readers from around the world to send me short video snippets of their kids, answering the questions: 1) Why do you like soccer/World Cup? 2) What team are you cheering for?

    If you’re interested, I would love if you could participate- either by sending in a video, or by helping to get participants from your readers. Here is our last video: http://youtu.be/SpIgpdy9rjU So far I have kids from: Mexico, Brazil, Germany, The Netherlands, Costa Rica, US, and Ghana. I would love to have more!!!

    I love your site and just watched tons of the videos you had posted to pinterest- so awesome. If you are interested in collaborating on anything, I’ve love to connect. Thanks!
