Global Voices Delhi Summit: Join us in December!

Please join us for the Global Voices 2006 Summit, December 16th in New Delhi, India!

India Gate, by ramkrsna

The Global Voices Summit, on December 16th, will be our annual opportunity to take stock, come together and explore our central question: How can we use the Internet to build a more democratic, participatory global discourse? How can we create a more inclusive conversation about what is happening on our planet, and how human beings in different parts of the world are impacting each other in countless ways we don't realize every day?

This year we also hope to address two further questions:

  • – How do we bring more unheard, ignored, or disadvantaged voices into the global online conversation?
  • - How do we help people speak and be heard — even when powerful people try to stop them from doing so?
  • WHO WILL BE ATTENDING?
    Global Voices editors, contributors, community members, interested bloggers and journalists. Basically, anybody who is interested in what it means for media, geopolitics, and global society when the whole world starts talking online.
