This effort to join forces will certainly be fruitful. Can we think of a meeting of the "shared communication initiatives" and press activities on the 5th of February? At the media center, around lunch time? Who could / would be present? cheers, Jason On Fri, Jan 28, 2011 at 10:45 AM, Abdullah Vawda [IPS Africa] <avawda@...> wrote: Dear friends, Hope you are energised and ready for a great event? Below is a small update from Inter Press Service, following our fundraising and collaboration efforts: * The IPS TerraViva WEBSITE is now active, http://www.ips.org/TV/wsf which will host the latest news, features, interviews and images from Dakar. * IPS will be producing MULTI-LINGUAL POSTERS of TerraViva (size 40 x 60 cm) every day with French, Arabic, English Swahili stories included. * IPS and Flamme have agreed to SHARE CONTENT produced by the respective teams, for publication in print and to be circulated across various networks. * IPS is speaking to e-joussor to make ARABIC CONTENT available for publication in TerraViva (online and poster editions) * A joint TRAINING WORKSHOP for selected journalists on 3-4 February is being organised by the Panos and Amarc teams, as IPS does not have an office or resources in Dakar. * Three IPS REPORTERS from Senegal will provide daily coverage of the WSF and their reports will be published online. * IPS Director General Mario Lubetkin will be participating in three SIDE EVENT seminars. Additional joint events may be confirmed in the next few days, such as a proposed 'Media Rountable' discussion. * IPS will be producing a tabloid size TerraViva newsletter IN PORTUGUESE language, for distribution on the final day, as the South American sponsors specifically requested Portuguese language material at the WSF. * Out team is looking forward to working with other communications organisations that seek to promote the messages of the Forum, such as AMARC, CIRANDA, AMANDLA, WSF TV, SACSIS, Pambazuka, CIVICUS, e-Joussour, etc, etc See you soon, Regards, Abdullah Vawda Marketing Manager Inter Press Service (IPS) Africa www.ips.org/africa Head Office: 283 Dunkeld West Centre, cnr Jan Smuts Ave and Bompas Rd, Johannesburg, 2196 (South Africa) Tel: +27 11 325 2671 Fax: +27 11 325 2891 Email: avawda@... -- Archive: http://openfsm.net/[.]/1296209822624 To unsubscribe send an email with subject "unsubscribe" to communication-commission-discussion@....
