Ben Brandzel Visits CIVICUS
Posted by civilsocietyindex on July 22, 2010
Ben Brandzel recently stopped by CIVICUS to talk about his work and experiences with online campaigning and its effects on mobilization for various campaigns. Ben has vast knowledge on e-Campaigning, having worked on various campaigns such as MoveOn, GetUp, Avaaz, 38 Degrees, and most recently the 1Goal education campaign.
Ben spoke to some staff member about the use of online campaigning through WebPages, emails, text messages, blogs, and social media such as Twitter and Facebook to raise awareness for civil society causes. He also enlightened us on the advantages of using social media like Twitter and Facebook as opposed to text and email but said statistics show that there is no definite evidence that traditional media has been replaced by the electronic media.
CIVICUS was proud to host Ben for the short time that he was with us and thanks him for his invaluable insight into the world of online campaigning and the uses of e-media in civil society.
