symposium logoOne of the most pressing questions of our time is how we can join together using social media and digital tools and content to influence public policy. Everything from revolutions to the environment and health is shaped by how we connect, document, and change our lives. Join our interactive discussion with community organizers and practitioners in the field of new media. Learn practical tips and tools about implementing digital and social media for organizations and causes you care about. Explore the challenges to the integration of media activism and direct civic engagement. At the reception following, mix and mingle with people from a cross-section of fields and endeavors.
