Judy Rees. Great Britain|Named as a ‘Top 100 influencer in Remote Working’ in 2020 by Onalytica.

Whether you’re learning, managing a project or looking for business partners, personal relationships matter in our professional lives. But in the suddenly-fully-online world, some of the tools we’ve come to rely on – such as handshakes, eye contact and body language – are suddenly missing or profoundly changed.
So, how can we continue to build personal connections on online video calls? In this highly-interactive session, you’ll learn and practice some specific approaches that work.
NOTE: This is not a ‘talk’! Participants of the webinar will be playing an active role and must expect to be heard and seen.

How do you work online? Are you satisfied with how your team conduct online meetings? If not, if you feel the need to change and improve something, then our webinar can be helpful for you. A work meeting should produce productive energy, a sense of team spirit, more clarity and focus. How to achieve this? We understand the basic principles, rules and stages of effective working meetings, but let’s see what features we need to consider when we organise meetings online. Let’s put together a “cheat sheet” on how to prepare and hold online meetings. Let’s also look at the meetings in a broader context – how we can use online meetings to make remote teamwork easier.

SPEAKER:
Nelya Rakhimova | Open School of Sustainable Development

If you care about the social, environmental and economic condition of Russia, then you should know about the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs is a set of goals that Russia adopted together with 192 countries in the UN in 2015 and has pledged to achieve them by 2030. In 2020 Russia will report on the implementation of the SDGs to the UN for the first time. The civil society is an integral part of this implementation, and therefore it cannot be done without it.

Listen to Nelya Rakhimovas webinar “SDGs and Russian civil society: time to join forces”, and learn more about the implementation of the SDGs in Russia.

SUSTAINABLE SOLUTIONS AND DATA EMPOWERMENT IN THE DIGITAL SOCIETY

WHEN?:

LANGUAGE:

SPEAKER:
Sille Sepp www.mydata.org

Personal data is used across sectors and international borders to generate value and provide better services. This is mainly done based on big organisations’ agendas, without individuals’ full knowledge or control. On 25 May 2018, the EU GDPR came into effect, with data subjects rights to access, port, rectify, and delete their data. From organisations’ point of view, the new regulation also created a lot of confusion and fear, leaving many of them wondering what to do, in order to avoid the negative consequences of non-compliance. While those worries seem understandable, the discussions around GDPR need to develop from sole focus on legal compliance to fostering of ethical use of data.

This webinar shared some of the burning issues we face today in a digital society, while daring to dream and suggest a fairer, more sustainable and prosperous solution. Civil society organisations have a big role in turning the current paradigm towards a human-centric vision of personal data, as we need to move from data protection to data empowerment.

Maria Lukyanova | Information agency “Republic of Karelia”

The webinar was a step-by-step algorithm aiming at addressing information tasks for social and non-profit organisations. We discussed how to define priorities in the media sector so that daily routines and reporting do not “eat up” the key message.

We explored how to define key areas of informational work, how to search for topics and themes and how to effectively cover them.

With tangible examples, we learned how to invent, produce, describe and implement projects that catch the attention of the customer, the audience, and the media. By the end of the webinar, each listener had developed an idea for his project and was able to implement it the next day.
