We have archived this event. You can view the recording here.

In this, our second session in the series, expert speaker Shannon Ewing will be exploring how leading civil society organizations are using the decentralized web for impact.

These inspiring real-world case studies showcase innovators in fundraising, governance, humanitarian aid, traceability, and impact tokenization:

  • Crypto donation programs and NFTs for donor stewardship
  • Transparent voting systems and decentralized autonomous organizations
  • Refugee support and famine relief programs
  • Preventing human trafficking
  • Sustainable climate initiatives
  • Tokenizing impact outcomes

Afterward, you’ll receive a guide with hands-on activity and a takeaway explainer you can share with your organization. You’ll also have access to a live Q&A to clarify any questions you have.

Guide: Starting DWeb Development

Each workshop in our learning series is supported by a hands-on, step-by-step guide designed to help you take the information presented in the webinar and translate it into practical knowledge.

Maker Guide 2 will introduce you to Ethereum and give you the practical challenge of creating a simple NFT. The challenge will show you how to use development tools and is the first stage in learning how to create smart contracts and build DApps.

This guide is a brief introduction, so it is not definitive. We encourage you to take the lessons learned and explore further.
