2C: Social Media with Results: New Frontiers in Online Campaigns
Limited Capacity seats available

Can we change the world through online activism? Critics have blasted social media users as “slacktivists,” questioning the real-world impact of a hashtag or a “like.” Join this session for a discussion of the fast-evolving world of social media to discover how, with the right strategies and tools, online campaigns can achieve tangible results. Participants will be led through a learning exercise to develop their own online campaigns that go beyond mere awareness raising in order to drive real impact.

Session Materials:

  1. Campaign Strategy Grid
  2. Online Campaigning Worksheet
