Media Evolution Newsletter, March 16th, 2021

DEAR FRIENDS,

It’s mid-March and we have a ton of events and projects for you to get involved with. If you’re already running out of patience, take a scroll!

Right now, we are looking a bit extra for members who are keen on working with open data. Sweden, a country on the forefront of digital innovation, ranks surprisingly low when it comes to making public data available and so we’ve endeavored on a journey with Region Skåne and the City of Malmö to investigate how to change this.

Yesterday we launched our annual scouting process to pin down new wise people to join the Media Evolution board. We encourage you to nominate the people you believe could help this community develop and flourish. Deadline: April 1st.

It’s mid-March again and we still long to meet you all in person. Until we do, we hope to see you during some of these events:

🎪 EVENTS & OPPORTUNITIES

MARCH 17 / MINDFULNESS, COMPASSION AND EMOTIONAL REGULATION
Welcome to a webinar on mindfulness, compassion and emotional regulation with Philippe Goldin, PhD & Associate Professor at University of California Davis. Philippe is a psychologist and brain researcher and is one of the world’s leading researchers on mindfulness effects on the brain. Don’t miss out! On Zoom! Sign me up!

MARCH 17 / MEMBER MEETUP!
Bringing people together is what we do at Media Evolution. In times of a pandemic we just have to do it a little bit differently. During the meetup you’ll get the opportunity to introduce yourself and your company, meet and chat with other members and get a grip about what is going on in the community. On Zoom! Sign me up!

LUNCH WITH NEW FRIENDS – THE DIGITAL WAY, MARCH 18!
Spice up the lunch hour and meet a bunch of new wonderful people who all have one thing in common: being members of Media Evolution. One might say that Lunch with New Friends is a little bit like a blind date. In a very positive way with nice wibes. Indulge in interesting conversations and enjoy lunch together over Zoom. Simple as that. Sign me up!
