MDI contributes to EuroPCom, EU public communicators conference PDF Print

Date: 17 - 18 October 2012

Place: Brussels

europcom_shoesEuroPCom, the third conference of the public communicators at all levels in the EU, brought together communication managers and senior experts of local, regional, national and European authorities.

Over 700 colleagues from all EU member states took part in this networking event. Amongst them was Media Diversity Institute representative. Lectures, debates and interactive workshops focussed on major communication challenges: restoring public confidence, communicating Europe, e-communication and social media as well as on dialogue with youth, senior citizens and ethnic groups.

EuroPCom 2012 was organised by the Committee of the Regions, in partnership with the European Parliament, the Council of the EU, the Cyprus EU Presidency and the European Commission.

This year’s theme was reconnecting citizens, young and elderly, and how to re-gain their trust in European projects. One of the tools is Eurobarometer, whose latest results, launched at the Conference, show the level of stress European citizens have in the prosperous future. ‘All starts with the understanding of public, and while young want to talk about the future, the old about the history, all we do is talking about the Euro’, said Stefano Rolando, a communication expert. Reaching citizens on regional and local level is another challenge, agreed the participants.

Have Women Got Twitter Clout? PDF Print

femaletwitter3Event date: 30 May 2012

Region: UK

Women and the Twittersphere are hitting the headlines – for all the wrong reasons. According to the Independent’s Twitter 100 list only 18 of the top Tweeters are women. Media campaigners are calling on broadcasters to sign a pledge to ensure that 30 per cent of guest pundits are female – and not just when they need case studies or ‘victim’ comments. Why are so few women considered authoritative or influential in social media beyond ‘niche’ topics? And why are so many women still being excluded from the media, despite making up around 50 per cent of its workforce?
