YES! Global Collaborative Day of Engagement

I just had a great conversation with Julie Pennington of YES! about how we can bring Visual Recording to YES!'s Global Collaborative Day of Engagement on June 28th in Berkeley. I took some initial notes about how I might be of service, and then I turned my ideas into the Visual Record you see above (click on the image to see a larger view). Julie will be presenting this map to her co-workers as a way to communicate how Visual Recording can contribute to the conversations being generated by participants of the Day of Engagement - which is going to be a great event, and is free of charge.
