Social Media Exchange
In May 2008, RootSpace launched a six-month program to introduce and train members of Lebanon s civil society (organizations and individuals) in social and participatory media on the internet, both (1) to help organizations and projects improve and streamline their internal organization, management and communications, and (2) to help them achieve their social objectives.
The program will unfold in two phases. The first phase will consist of an introductory seminar on the social web - including social bookmarking, RSS (Really Simple Syndication), and blogging - and how it can be used in an NGO environment. The second phase will consist of advanced, hands-on workshops in the various technologies as well as mentorship opportunities for select NGO participants. Introductory seminars will be conducted in various regions of Lebanon, while most of the hands-on workshops will take place in Beirut.
The schedule and more detailed information will be available soon.
