Numbers Station Charlie is a full-service, boutique communications and connections studio, driven to support
the Third Sector in their leveraging of communications in the digital age to achieve social good.
We help non-governmental and non-profit organizations define the grey space between producer of knowledge and consumer, organization and staff, project and on-the-ground action, researcher and practitioner, external and internal actors, by identifying, designing and delivering the communications strategies and tools needed most.
Our determination to support this sector stems from our own experience. Station Charlie is an initiative of the Institute for Natural Resources and Sustainable Development (INRSD), a multi-national think-do tank with decades of cumulative staff experience and expertise. INRSD holds firm the belief that technology, when used appropriately, can provide unprecedented positive change in the lives of others. Whether this is through its use in conducting new research, or the application of technological innovations in the resultant action areas of that research, new methods of information transmission, establishing digital communities and connectivity, knowledge dissemination, crowdsourcing, modeling, learning and teaching, monitoring and evaluation, and creating lasting change, technology is seen as a significant factor, if not the driving force behind any success.
Already, NSC has become a champion for the Third Sector, from its collaboration with client partners in three distinct areas:
- Digital Asset Needs Assessment, Design, and Development – we identify and/or build the web and mobile tools you need for your projects and programming;
- Communications and Knowledge Mobilization Strategy – we work with you to strategize the best approach to leveraging new and existing platforms, applications, and technologies for your organization; and,
- Digital Communications Consultancy – we act as your ongoing and always available translators and guides to the digital world, helping you navigate it with confidence. We are in your corner whenever you need us.
Accessing that technology know-how at a reasonable cost and sector relevant perspective, however, has been a consistent challenge for INRSD’s researchers and practitioners. Instead of relegating ourselves to the back of the corporate clientele line, INRSD created Station Charlie, to support the delivery of innovative communications and connections of research and practice by Institute personnel, and the Third Sector writ large. Station Charlie fills a widening gap for actors and individuals who have traditionally be unable to access world-class, digital-ready communications services.
We’re excited to connect with you!
