At the end of August we will have held a meetup on social reporting and the new media. This is a webinar follow up to that for those who could not attend and also for those who did and would like to take this further.
Mainstream news on traditional channels are these days often biased and slanted towards the corporate elites who dominate our society but the New Media offers the possibility for citizens to have their voice and to be heard.
GlobalNet21 was set up to discuss some of the big issues of our century and to give a voice to those often unheard in the public square. We do this through meetings and webinars but we also do this through digital stories and social reporting.
So we are holding our meetup and this webinar for those interested in developing this side of our activities – that is of being social reporters or collecting digital stories. We have also collected some digital stories with the Migrant Museum Project and will be doing more with Sports Inspired.
Christina has set up a Facebook Group for those interested in Social Reporting and you can find that at https://www.facebook.com/groups/socialreportersnetwork/
We are also considering developing a weekly Internet tv programme where social reporters will have an outlet for their materials and reports.
So if you are interested in discussing all of this or if you are you someone interested in social reporting or have a story to tell then come along to this webinar so that we can go through it all and develop it together.
