Citizen journalism and social media at 6 Billion Ways

During 6 Billion Ways our group of citizen journalists will be using social media tools – blogging, photography and video production – to report for the website. The idea is to produce interesting content that people who can’t attend the event can engage with, create a permanent record of everything that went on and build a space where people can engage with each other beyond the day.

We’re going to set up a media centre with laptops and internet connection where people can upload their videos and photographs, provide training in blogging and social reporting and stream the sessions in the Amnesty building live on the internet. We’ll also be interviewing speakers, delegates and panelists, writing blog posts and uploading photographs and videos to the website.
