Neil is based out of the Evermaven studio in Toronto, Ontario, Canada when not in the field. Through his collaborations with organizations and individuals around the world Neil Ever Osborne shares his perspective on the people and planet connection and how each of us has a role to play in building the capacity of the civil society sector that is poised to create the real social change needed in our world. Using a breadth of visual stories and an analysis of NGO communication capacity, the presentation uses personal anecdotes and case studies from assignments with Nikon Canada and the Canadian Geographic Magazine, among many others. Key Message: As active citizens we all have a role to play to build the capacity of the civil society sector that is poised to create real social change through visual storytelling.
