In the world’s current environment, it is not far off to foresee a future where even social gatherings are online especially after witnessing a pandemic. Through digitalization, global accessibility in such events is made possible. We can participate in any gathering with a click and join in through the public screens placed during these events. “The Gatherer” app let’s you see all these ongoing events around the globe to select which cause you want to support and join in. Having access to a public gathering with one click allows a higher number of participations therefore leading to a greater impact in a short period of time.

However, this global accessibility comes with a price: controlled environments. Putting limitations to physical participation could be a gateway for governments to fully filter the events, track all the participants.
