Some ideas for WildHub

As I was chatting with @Thirza Loffeld @Lucy Tallents and other WildHub members on today's social I got a couple of ideas that I'd like to put forward to the community to see it anyone thinks they might be worth keeping.  1. A communication space like a 'job board' for members who either are looking for volunteers and interns, or for members who want to gain experience in a particular area of conservation and are willing to be interns or volunteers for any space of time.  I think many WildHub members may see some value in this. Fore example, I am looking for an intern in communications, marketing and social media for the entrepreneurial side of my conservation and climate education work.  2. Thirza mentioned plans to build even more inclusion into WildHub by setting up country ambassadors and spaces for members to meet in different languages, growing the global accessibility of the community. I think this is a great idea, and it made me think that another angle on this might be to have specific subject groups that any member may join. Something akin to the Species Specialist Groups set up by IUCN. For example, I would love to see and belong to a Climate Change group within WildHub, to meet other WH members who have interest in, or even work in CC-related aspects of conservation (e.g. Ecosystem-based Solutions). Just some ideas!
