Social Media Workshop
This workshop is aimed at CLC staff interested in expanding their understanding of social media tools (such as Twitter, Facebook, e-newsletters) and how they can be of benefit to CLCs.
Recent human rights and democratic developments seem to demonstrate that social media can be a useful tool for information sharing, engagement, mobilization and the coordination of social action.
This workshop will cover:
(1) social media’s role in relation to CLC marketing and promotion - how CLCs can use social media to raise their profile to engage with supporters, funders, media, and to promote CLE sessions, employment opportunities, challenges, wins;
(2) the ways in which social media is and can be used by the human rights and social justice movement - including the impact and utility of social media in promoting and protecting human rights; and
(3) some of the risks and challenges associated with using social media.
