Calling All Sri Lankan Digital Activists, Bloggers, Journalists, and Influencers!

Are you looking for global connections, an inclusive community and inspiration?

Join the Global Voices 2017 Summit in Colombo, Sri Lanka on December 2-3 to meet inspiring activists, bloggers, journalists and influencers from 60 countries!

At the Summit, we’ll be discussing the evolving state of the open Internet, the future of online conversations, and human rights in the digital age. In interactive sessions, panels, and debates, we will delve into complex issues ranging from misinformation and disinformation to corporate hijinks to legal threats against bloggers and activists—all challenges that could make or break the future of the internet.

Since 2006, Global Voices Summits have brought together the most innovative and inspiring digital activist and citizen media communities from around the world. Past Summits in London, New Delhi, Budapest, Santiago de Chile, Nairobi and Cebu City have strengthened community ties, sparked new friendships, and served as a catalyst for new ideas and collaborations across borders.

Even though the Summit will bring together guests from around the world, we actively seek to include local perspectives and experiences during these conversations. To ensure that Sri Lankans from a wide variety of backgrounds are able to take part in our Summit, Global Voices in partnership with Hashtag Generation is offering Sri Lankan bloggers, digital activists, and digital journalists a chance to win a free two-day pass to attend the Summit.

Sri Lankans, you can win a free two-day pass to join us at the 2017 Global Voices Summit by:

1.) upload a photograph or video of yourself on Instagram, Twitter, YouTube or Facebook…
2.) .. that answers the following question: “How have you used the web to make the world more inclusive or just”
3.) Make sure you add the hashtag #SLVoices
4.) Submit by November 7, 2017

We invite Sri Lankans from across the country to take part in this friendly competition.

A small committee of Global Voices and Hashtag Generation community members will review the entries and select up to 15 winners. Selected winners will be notified by November 13.
