Come and join 150 civic activists and media professionals who will come together to explore ways to leverage the power of digital technologies to foster civic engagement and advance social change.
“@Social Media’s PACE” Fair
The @Social Media’s PACE fair will feature panel discussions, concurrent workshops, consultancy booths, and networking activities for the exchange of ideas and expertise. NGOs will discuss how to advance their missions, widen their reach, and amplify their impact through digital activism. Media and marketing professionals will contribute to the debate by exploring the increased convergence between social media and traditional media outlets.
A networking game and digital auction will allow participants to earn prizes from sponsors to support their organizations in enhancing digital activism and making a difference in their community. In addition to prizes such as free website design and software, sponsors will also provide on-the-spot consultancies to participants on ways to improve their online presence.
The @Social Media’s PACE is a Media Innovations Fair organized by the Promoting Active Citizen Engagement (PACE) program funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
