Date: Saturday 13th May 2012 Event: Cybher Location: Trafalgar Square, London
Cybher is the first female blogger event of its kind in the UK and was founded by established blogger Sian To. The one-day event brings together the most influential bloggers and speakers from all corners of the blogosphere to network, inspire, share and learn.
World Vision are delighted to be partners with Cybher and it was fantastic to spend the day with so many inspiring women. Liz Scarff and Sian spoke about how social media is changing and developing at such a fast rate, we can even use it to help turn oppression into opportunity. The book that they and many other female bloggers highly recommends is 'Half the Sky' by Nicholas D. Kristof & Sheryl WuDunn. Click on the link on the right to watch a documentary about the book.
Twitter is fast becoming a way of using social media for a good cause. Currently in Niger many people are dying from starvation due to the terrible food crisis. Everybody can help get involved to stop this from becoming worse, and all it takes is a click of a few buttons.
