Friday 24th June, 2011
9:00am to 10:30am
The first half of 2011 has seen dramatic events — some tragic, others encouraging — take place across the globe. From revolutions in Egypt and Tunisia to an earthquake, tsunami and nuclear crisis in Japan, breaking news has been reported by individual citizens as well as professional journalists. And explaining the complex nuances of unfolding events has shown the power of civic media in informing local communities and the wider world.
In this session, we'll talk with two individuals who've been part of efforts to share perspectives from civic media with a global audience.
