We're delighted to announce the Global Voices Citizen Media Summit 2012! Our gathering takes place this year in Nairobi, Kenya on July 2-3, 2012, in partnership with Nairobi's iHub.
Visit the Summit web site for background information on the goals of the meeting – we'll be adding registration details very soon.
Over the next 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.
The Global Voices Citizen Media Summit 2012 has been made possible thanks to the generous support of Google, Hivos, MacArthur Foundation, the Open Society Foundations, Adessium Foundation, Knight Foundation, Omidyar Network, and Yahoo!.
Great and wonderful initiative to make the voices be heard, no matter the barriers, voices has the power to penetrate. Thanks for organing the summit.
This is a great chance for the voice of the voiceless rural woman in Kenya to be heard. It couldn’t have come at a better time.
