1st Conference of Citizen Media
Based on our experience in training activists and bloggers, we organized the 1st Conference of Citizen Media Clubs that we helped create in the regions. The event gathered 30 trainers (5 from each citizen media club) in Nawaat’s office for 4 days (between April 30th and May 3rd 2012). The training-conference was accompanied by an on-the-ground training and workshop.
During those days, Nawaat launched a national platform, Jaridaty.net (My Newspaper in Arabic), in order to aggregate these 6 regional blogs and consolidate its national network of citizen journalists. Nawaat next step will be the creation of 6 more Citizen Media Clubs in 6 different cites and reach 12 clubs by the end of 2012.
