DECIDIS event: Election Activism on Social Media

Join us on the 24th of April to an interesting public event about the use of social media in an election and referendum context.

What are the experiences of using social media to inform about, impact and discuss elections and important referendums in European countries? And in that context: what role do and should social media play in a democratic society?

Speakers include Stewart Kirkpatrick, digital manager of the “Yes Scotland” campaign and Jaquou Utopie a critical political voice in the Greek Twitter sphere.

The talks will be followed by an open panel debate with the invited speakers and social media researchers Jakob Linaa Jensen (DMJX) and Lisbeth Klastrup (ITU).

Participation is free and open for all, but please sign up by sending a short mail with name and affiliation to: decidisadmin@itu.dk 
with “DECIDIS election event April” as the subject line.

Date and time: April 24th 2015 | 13.00 – 15.30
