The event, moderated by one of Australia's leading digital marketers and communicators Kate Carruthers, will be hosted at the Shelbourne Hotel in Sydney on 22nd March at 7pm. The latest Digital Citizens event will include Labor Parliamentary Secretary for Transport and Roads Penny Sharpe, John Bergin, Director of Digital News for Sky News, Steve Hopkins from Ai-Media and Thomas Tudehope, Director of Engagement and Strategy for SR7. "With social media helping shape events around the globe in 2011 we wanted to start the first Digital Citizens session of the year with a strong topic," said James Fridley, one of the Digital Citizens founders. "The panel will discuss how activists and politicians create campaigns, how the audience engage with them and how news media investigate and report on the outcomes using social media." With over 12 million Australians now online, engaging with your constituency online is no longer a might do but a must-have for politicians and policy makers alike. Decentralised networks and speed of mobilisation means grassroots activists using networked technologies can achieve an unprecedented amount of support and harness individual actions on a mass level with social and political change campaigns. The venue for this event is the Shelbourne Hotel, 200 Sussex Street, Sydney, doors open at 6.30pm for a 7pm start. Tickets are $10 with 50% of the price going to charity Sydney Cats and Dogs Home - who shelter over 4,000 lost and unwanted animals each year. The organization is running Parched March to help raise funds.
