Better World Links
The internet is the most powerful tool humanity has ever known for connecting people and spreading ideas across the globe. Open communication, dialogue and discussion are fundamental pillars of any effective peace process, whilst global movements such as the environmental movement have demonstrated the enormous capacity of the internet to raise awareness, connect and mobilise. This workshop will explore the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead as we seek to maximise the internet’s full potential as an instrument for building a stronger and more effective global peace movement and for fostering a more peaceful world. Umbrella campaigns and the effective use of social media to engage the public will be a main focus. Better World Links can serve as a central resource and participatory & interactive platform for the global community.
