Since January 1, 2018, stewardship of Hive Chicago has transitioned from Mozilla to a new local non-profit, the Chicago Learning Exchange (CLX). Please visit us at chicagolx/joinus to learn how you and your organization can join our growing community. The Hive is still the Hive.

#hivebuzz: Share program or project updates

Click here to learn about how you can Share & Lead discussions or projects at the meetup.

During the meetup anyone can have 60 seconds to announce an event, program or opportunity available to others and then 10-15 minutes to lead small discussion/breakout groups to share more details and information about your update with curious attendees. If you are interested, you’ll need to let us know in advance. Please submit your information via the online form by end of the day, on the Tuesday EOB before the meetup.

Moonshots Working Groups: lead discussion and project groups

Have a project? Want to lead a discussion? In advance of the Meetup: let us know if you are interested in leading one of these groups:

Moonshot discussion groups: You or a representative can volunteer to lead a discussion about a project idea that connects to a Moonshot; either how it serves to demonstrate challenges related to the area, or how it demonstrates a solution to those challenges. Discussion groups allow you to invite input from other Hivers.

Moonshot project groups: in this area of activity, you would present the project and pieces of work or tasks that others can help with. This might be drafting, designing, communicating, reviewing, etc. The goal would be to help others contribute to the work. In this format you can facilitate an engaging share-out of your project while also getting something done! Ideally, this is work that could be brought back to meetups monthly.


October Meetup Recap

The October Meetup was amazing!  There were puppies, kittens, and birds thanks to The Anti Cruelty Society being our gracious host.  In addition, Community Engagement and School Hive shared updated information about their moonshot initiatives.
