A team of Southern NYS Division members and volunteers is planning to cover Rio+Social, with five on-the-ground in Brazil — Team leader Julia Ewing and co-leader Joshua Cooper, UNA member from Hawaii, will be joined by UNA former interns Carolina Magalhaes and Ana Beatriz Nano, both Brazilians, and Pedro Vicente, Portuguese, former students at EF International School in Tarrytown. If you would like to join in the blogging and tweeting, email: firstname.lastname@example.org to learn how.
Rio+Social is a groundbreaking, global conversation about the nexus of social media, technology, and sustainability. The forum will take place on June 19th, alongside the Rio+20 Summit, the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development.
This one-day event will enable a global dialogue between a live audience in Rio de Janeiro and thousands around the world participating in real time via Livestream. Hundreds of bloggers and journalists, including our team, will interact in the Digital Media Lounge (DML), a fully wired work space on-site for media from which they can report and network.
