Questions to Ask, Do U want to Answer?

Filed under: Uncategorized — soundsiranian @ 8:58 pm

Global Voices will hold its conference in India this week. There are questions to answer:
question: How can we use the Internet to build a more democratic, participatory global discourse? How can we create a more inclusive conversation about what is happening on our planet, and how human beings in different parts of the world are impacting each other in countless ways we don’t realize every day?

This year we also hope to address two further questions:
· How do we bring more unheard, ignored, or disadvantaged voices into the global online conversation?
· How do we help people speak and be heard – even when powerful people try to stop them from doing so?
