Global Voices Meetup in Lagos, Nigeria

gvmeetuplogo1Global Voices Meetups are back in 2014. Following a successful round of gatherings in six cities around the world in 2013, members of our community are working to organize opportunities for our readers and others interested to learn more about our work and to become involved in our mission. We are pleased to announce the next Global Voices Meetup is scheduled for Thursday, April 17 in Lagos, Nigeria.

The meetup will be hosted by Global Voices community member Nwachukwu Egbunike (@feathersproject) in conjunction with the School of Media and Communication at Pan-Atlantic University in Victoria Island, Lagos beginning at 9:00 a.m. Registration is required (see below for more information).

The Meetup will be an opportunity for students, bloggers, and others working in the field of citizen media to share experiences and to learn about the work of one another. In addition, the event will focus on:

  • Providing an overview of the work that we do at Global Voices, including Rising Voices, Advox, and Lingua
  • Sharing ways that the wider community can get involved with Global Voices
  • Networking activities so that participants can share information about their own digital projects or ideas for projects
  • Discussions about how to validate news on social media
