PeaceTech Summit 2018
We have so many new tools and strategies that prevent violent conflict and promote peacebuilding – from instantaneous global communication and new capital markets to artificial intelligence, predictive analytics, professionalized conflict resolution, and many more. The 2018 PeaceTech Summit will ask: Why aren’t we using them?
Jennifer Cobb, Vice president of Strategic Outreach at Internews and Head of the United for News Project, will be speaking on May 8 at 3:25PM on the panel:
GOOD NEWS, FROM THE PEOPLE WHO MAKE IT
Media plays a critical role in "Powering PeaceTech," but what does it take to power media? Especially given today's technology-enabled spread of "fake news" and "alternative facts?" Media practitioners, behavior change experts, and leaders of media capacity-building efforts offer leading-edge perspectives on building and sustaining a peacemedia industry. Others on the panel include Bruce Sherman, Strategic Advisor, PeaceTech Lab; Craig Hammer, Global Media Development, World Bank; Susan Krenn, Executive Director of the Center for Communications Programs at Johns Hopkins University; and Carine Umuhumuza, Director of Communications at Devex.
