We're thrilled to announce that the Global Voices Citizen Media Summit 2015 will take place on January 24-25 in Cebu City, Philippines.

Our sixth Citizen Media Summit takes us for the first time to South East Asia, where we'll convene two days of public conversations and workshops with bloggers, activists and technologists about the state of citizen media, the Internet and online participation within the venerable walls of the Cebu Provincial Capitol in Cebu City. The 2015 Summit, like all previous events, is a great opportunity for learning and sharing with an incredible global community.

Stay tuned for the launch next week of the Summit web site with details on the event, registration info and more—and do save the date!

Održali smo i nekoliko sastanaka i samita, (a jedan nas čeka u januaru!). […]
