Join us on 18 July for our live webinar on developing social media guidelines for journalists and media makers in Southern Africa. 

This live 40 minute webinar will build on the Public Media Alliance and UNESCO’s recent workshop in Namibia on “Developing Social Media Guidelines for Broadcasters in Southern Africa”.

The workshop brought together journalists and media practitioners in an attempt to collaboratively develop relevant and progressive guidelines for outlets across the region.

The Webinar will include presentations by media trainers Robert Freeman & Emily May Brown that summarise the importance of social media guidelines and some of the key points that were agreed in the workshop. There will also be real-time Q&A and presentations by workshop participants reflecting on the workshop’s outcomes.

The aim of the webinar is to provide participants with a better understanding of the role of new technologies and social media in their media practice. This includes:

  • Uncovering and appreciating the risks and benefits of using different platforms
  • Gaining a thorough overview of how guidelines can apply to their organisation.
  • Developing a network of contacts and links to other broadcasters and media organisations across the region.

The webinar will be recorded and available to view after the live session and is free for participants and colleagues from media organisations across Southern Africa.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
