Presentation Tips & Technology
Sustainability of social change is more likely if the community affected own the process and content of communication.
Communication for social change should be empowering, horizontal (versus top-down), give a voice to the previously unheard members of the community, and be biased towards local content and ownership.
Communities should be the agents of their own change.
Shift emphasis from persuasion and the transmission of information from outside technical experts to dialogue, debate and negotiation. Think social media.
Technology is only a tool.
“Your website isn’t something people read, it’s something they do. Visiting your site is an activity.” ---Industry newsletter
