IOM would like to introduce to you iDiaspora – a global resource and networking hub for diaspora groups and expatriates around the world.
As part of our mission, we seek to engage, enable, and empower diaspora and transnational communities as agents for development. With this in mind, IOM has begun developing the iDiaspora platform, idiaspora.org, to be a tool that will help members of diaspora and expatriates to connect and collaborate across their transnational communities. But to do that we need your input!
We don’t want to just create another website, we want to build a dynamic workspace that responds to the real needs of individuals and groups working in this transnational space. Thus, we want the development of the platform to be a participatory process where the end users get the opportunity to shape the design of the platform and to decide what kinds of tools and resources it will provide.
We need to know what tools, functionalities, and services would be useful for you to fulfill your potential. The survey is mostly multiple choice and will take 10 to 15 minutes of your time. All information you provide will be crucial to making iDiaspora a useful tool for diaspora communities around the world and will be maintained confidential.
We would also encourage you to sign up for iDiaspora and connect with diaspora and expatriate communities globally for sharing your work, finding inspiration and new initiatives. You will have access to regularly updated news, relevant resources, learning and funding opportunities. As a member, you will be able to use iDiaspora for sharing your knowledge, creating and managing your events and networking with each other and diaspora experts.
As they say a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step and we hope that you will take that step with us by sparing us a few minutes of your time and embarking on the journey to create a new interconnected global community of Diaspora.
