UN DAY: The UN & the Future of Communication
Events | Headline and Cultural Forums
We saw the role that new social media (Facebook, Twitter, Youtube) and satellite television played in the revolutions of the Arab Spring. Could the UN leverage these tools to better tell their story and invite wider and deeper global participation? Join the United Nations Assocation of Oregon for a talk with Stephane Dujarric, the UN’s Director of News and Media who will look at new horizons for communication and community-building. Dujarric discusses how participatory media, advocacy journalism, hybrid/multimedia journalism, and even celebrity endorsement around human rights and development issues might transform its reach and impact.
Cosponsored with the United Nations Association of Oregon
NOTE: Venue has changed to First Congregational Church - Fellowship Hall
