What can Second Life do for Unions?

As 180 youth members (that’s <35 years old!) of the trade union movement meet in Barcelona for a UNI conference next week, there will be an emphasis on web 2.0 tools.

An opportunity to visit Union Island in Second Life, and explore the possibile use participants may see in a world of action, conference space and free translations. 20 computers will give 60 of them the chance to spend 1 hour moving around and meeting people from 12:30-13:30 CET. Come join us and show them around your own favourite SL places! Help them find inspiration for their reports back to the conference on how they think unions should use SL to their advantage!
