Social Media Panel presentation
United Nations - Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities
Discussion topics included incorporating high-tech and low-tech solutions; examining the power of organizational and individual storytelling; trying social media; and considering it not only as a means to acquire large numbers, but also its ability to offer immediate, one-on-one communication.
In addition, one of the audience participants, Hala, from Egypt, who was present during her country’s revolution, talked about using social media as a tool and writing new Egyptian laws to implement the Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities on Facebook.
