Oct 17 – Social media at the UN

This was a very interesting workshop in that we saw great willingness from prominent UNESCO officials to involve youth in their programmes through social media. Mr. Alonzo Addison, Director of Corporate Web Services at UNESCO noted that the comments that youth make through social media channels will be summarized on the internal websites of diplomats and UNESCO policy makers. Below is a list of social medias used by UNESCO.

1. Facebook – « like » UNESCO and comment on their questions

2. Twitter – follow #UNESCONOW and state your opinions

The panelists urged all youth to participate in the debate.
