Sunshine & the Social Web - Panel Discussion Tuesday, March 13th

Sunshine and the Social Web: Citizen Power through New Media Tools

A Panel Discussion With:

Tuesday March 13, 2012 // 6-8p.m. // At The GreenHouse 

Media mergers have limited the number of professional journalists working in Hawaii today. Coverage of public offices and issues has suffered while citizen interest remains. Can social media and citizen journalism fill the content void and ensure we have the information needed for a healthy democracy?  How can citizens use technology to promote government transparency and public engagement?

Come celebrate Sunshine Week with Media Council Hawaii and Common Cause Hawaii as our esteemed panelists help answer this question and others on government transparency and the public right to know. Sunshine Week is a national initiative to promote a dialogue about the importance of open government and freedom of information.

Hope you can join us! RSVP to info@mediacouncil.org.
