Web2forDev conference: Call for Journalists

Web2forDev 2007 is the first international conference to discuss how new Internet tools commonly known as Web 2.0 can be used to the advantage of Southern actors to more efficiently network, collaborate and exchange information in the field of rural and agricultural development and natural resource management.

CTA will support three journalists from Africa, the Caribbean or the Pacific (ACP countries) to attend the conference and lead its daily coverage.

The selected journalists will be responsible for preparing a multimedia (text, images and voice) Daily Digest and to publish it via the conference blog. The digest will consist – for instance – of short articles on the presentations, interviews with participants and presenters and special focus to capture the “open space spirit” of the event. The objective is to offer an insight to those who could not attend. Depending on the selected journalists, the Daily Digest will be based on written and audio recorded material.

Further details here. Closing date: mid-July.
