This is an invitation to see an early demo and test a new and innovative social media platform, ImpacTree—a collaboration between Harvard School of Public Health and the MIT Media Lab. ImpacTree uses novel crowd-sourcing techniques to empower users to convert social capital into real currency for funding important global causes. The seminar also focuses on the academic research opportunities the platform offers and how it enhances corporate social responsibility for high impact and individualized philanthropy.
