Back in June, Social Innovation Camp descended on Glasgow and about 80 people took part in 48 hours of brainstorming, designing and developing a web apps for social good. One of the 6 ideas that were worked on – FlockLocal – has recently received UnLtd funding and launched its beta site!
Just a quick recap – the idea behind FlockLocal is to allow people to create flashmobs for social good. In a nutshell, low commitment volunteering opportunities.
You can log into the site using Facebook and Twitter and post flock opportunities or sign up as a “flocker”. James Baster, the developer behind the current version of Flock Local, is looking for feedback on the site and any volunteers that want to help develop the site further.
Make sure you go along and have a look. Happy flocking!
