Ecology & Technology: Teaming up with Timeraiser for Social Media Week Toronto

We love sharing our office space with Timeraiser (and not just because they have an amazing turtle  called Bertie). Timeraiser changes lives by encouraging people to bid volunteer hours, not money, for amazing works of art by local artists at events up and down the country.

We’re joining forces with them during Social Media Week (September 23-27) to host a panel discussion about tech and ecology featuring three leading scientists and moderated by Timeraiser founder Anil Patel. Register here: Free to attend!
