Did Facebook save Levenshulme Baths?

Of course it didn’t!  But, as we take a focus on community campaigning using social media and online tools, we will be joined by campaigners from Save Levenshulme Baths.

This campaign was recently successful in overturning plans to close a facility much-valued by the local community.  But what role – of any – did social media play in this?

We will also get some input from the Save Whalley Range Treescampaign – another recent successful grassroots campaign

Finally, the people from ipadio will tell us how charities and non-profits are starting campaigns by just making a phone call.  Technology eh!

This should be a great meetup – will be really great to hear from a local community voice.  Whether web technology has anything to do with it, will be an interesting discussion.

Swimming costumes are optional!
