New on SSIR: Global Tools for Going Local

Amy Sample Ward

Just as our tools get more interesting and dynamic for global collaboration and impact, so do they for locally-focused work, campaigns, and communities. Global use of social media is also a great way to amplify voices, ideas, and stories. Don’t forget the global context!
