Announcing the Global Voices Citizen Media Summit 2010

Categories: Announcements

We're delighted to announce the Global Voices Citizen Media Summit 2010 [1]! Our gathering takes place this year in Santiago, Chile on May 6-7, 2010.

Visit the Summit web site [1] for background information on the goals of the meeting [2], the program of events [3], registration details [4] and information about the vibrant city of Santiago. Among the highlights of the proceedings will be the announcement of the winners of the Breaking Borders award [5], a new prize created by Google and Global Voices to honor outstanding web projects initiated by individuals or groups demonstrating courage, energy and resourcefulness in using the Internet to promote freedom of expression.

Over the next few days and weeks we'll be fleshing out the program, adding speaker bios, a list of attendees and more — and do keep checking in at the site for blog posts and commentary from Summit participants and others, as well as to join in the conversation.

You can also help spread the word about the Global Voices Summit by flying one of our Summit badges or banners [6] on your blog or web site.

The Global Voices Citizen Media Summit 2010 has been made possible thanks to the generous support of the MacArthur Foundation [7], Google [8]Open Society Institute [9], Knight Foundation [10] and Yahoo! [11].

Current major sponsors include MacArthur Foundation, Google, Open Society Institute, Knight Foundation and Yahoo!
