How To Start A Movement, YouTube Style

Have you ever wondered how to build a movement using social media? How to stage a nonviolent protest? How to create a smart mob (or wondered what a smart mob is)?

You're in luck. Howcast, one of YouTube's most popular how-to channels, has released a series of engaging how-to videos that concentrate on using technology to movement-build and create social change:

Howcast created the videos in conjunction with the first-ever Alliance of Youth Movements Summit where social media experts and delegates from 17 international youth organizations met in New York City to discuss how young people can leverage social media and technology to end violence, oppression and human rights abuses around the world.
