On October 1st 2014, Global Voices announced the sixth citizen media summit to be held in Cebu City, Philippines (South East Asia).
But, what is Global Voices? Here’s the answer:
We are a borderless, largely volunteer community of more than 800 writers, analysts, online media experts and translators.
Global Voices has been leading the conversation on citizen media reporting since 2005. We curate, verify and translate trending news and stories you might be missing on the Internet, from blogs, independent press and social media in 167 countries.
Many of the world’s most interesting and important stories aren’t in just one place. Sometimes they’re scattered in bits and pieces across the Internet, in blog posts and tweets, and in multiple languages. These are the stories we accurately report on Global Voices—and translate into up to 30 languages, including Malagasy, Bangla and Aymara.
On January 24th and 25th, 2015, members of the Global Voices community will discuss with the public several issues regarding the Open Internet and human rights in the digital age. Interactive sessions, panels and debates will be held in the Cebu Provincial Capitol. You can learn more and register by clicking here!
People interested in taking part without travelling to the Philippines can do so through webcasts and other online activities using Twitter and Facebook.
