The Plenary content was a creative jigsaw puzzle, a creative collaboration curated by Derek Humphries and hosted by Marcelo Iniarra , from Argentina. The idea is that it is hard to get the crowd to speak with one voice, but the next speaker, Ben Rattray, Change.Org has done that. Change.org has more than 75 million users with 20,000 new petitions created every month – and he is seeing organizations work with activists at both the local, national, and international level.
