As part of this two year project we are running two Masterclasses to publicise the practices and lessons learnt on social media from across Europe. With five countries involved in the D2.0 project, we have sampled the best of what we found in each country, we aim for the line-up of presentations to be a representative sample of activity. To encourage networking and to build lasting connections, the spaces are limited to 30 attendees. The Masterclasses will be led by Emergency practitioners and Policy Makers from around Europe.
