Social Media Conference 2019
Social Media Conference 2019

Uganda's leading platform on social media trends and their political and social impacts

 

The Uganda Social Media Conference is an annual programme organized by the Uganda country office of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, aiming to bring together key stakeholders from government, civil society, academia and the media for a constructive exchange on the impact of social media on state and society to highlight both, opportunities and challenges. The conference provides a unique platform for theorising, dialoguing and engaging on how the growing relevance of social media shapes our social and political interactions and changes the way we access and process information

 

In its global engagement in the promotion of democracy and good governance, KAS has a long history of promoting free and professional media through journalism trainings and scholarship programmes as well as facilitating networking and dialogue platforms. Through the Media Programme for Sub-Saharan Africa based in Johannesburg, KAS supports journalists, bloggers and political communicators across the continent, for example by facilitating the online platform “Africa Blogging” (http://www.africablogging.org).
