The 2nd World Congress on Agroforestry starts Monday and preparations are hectic here at the World Agroforestry Centre in Nairobi.
The reporting team is getting ready to make some buzz about the Congress. We’ll do our best to leverage social media to increase reach, participation and sharing during the Congress. We have a team of 8 eager reporters ready to go.
Whether you’re participating in the Congress or not, you will be able to follow what’s going on through a variety of channels:
- The WCA 2009 blog: this is where you can get news, announcements, interviews and summary reports from the sessions. Keep an eye on it: subscribe to the RSS feed.
- Shared bookmarks on Delicious.com: get a flow of bookmarks to Congress information and related links.
- Twitter: short quotes and tidbits will help you feel like you’re at the Congress.
- Pictures on Flickr: photographs will be available from the World Agroforestry Centre photostream.
We’re looking for volunteers to rove the Congress meeting rooms, hallways and corridors to scout some good stories.
This post on WCA 2009 Blog has more about how to join the social reporters: check out the tags and how to contact us.
