The 1%CLUB

'When everybody invests 1% of their income, time and expertise we can solve poverty'. I really don't know who said it but it is with this idea that the 1%CLUB was founded. The 1%CLUB is an online community for small scaled development projects where the general public, companies, societies and schools can contribute 1% of their expertise, time and income directly towards the project of their choice.

YOU DECIDE WHAT’S NEXT

We love good ideas. No matter where they’re from. We love to realize the potential of people. No matter where or how they live. We are passionate advocates of the power and possibilities that the web, mobile and new media offer.

1%EVENT
The 1%EVENT is the Open Space event that connects people with smart ideas for projectsthat stimulate the self reliance of individuals anywhere in the world and improve their standard of living.

INNOVATIVE
The 1%EVENT brings together innovators, young professionals, entrepreneurs and change-makers that invest one day of their time, expertise, experience, talent, network and energy to work on new innovative approaches to international co-operation.

INTERNATIONAL CO-OPERATION 2.0
Massive collaboration, self-organization, open-source, collective intelligence and crowd sourcing – these are all trends that typify Web 2.0, where the person is at the centre of the process, and creates his or her own world. International development 2.0 is about using these ICT for development tools, techniques and models towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals.
