I’m currently in Bangkok where I’m helping to facilitate a workshop on “Social Media and Resilience” for Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies from Asia. It’s basically about how you can use social media to improve disaster preparedness, mitigate risks as well as respond and cope with disasters.
I think it’s going to be very interesting. We have speakers from the Thai Red Cross, Indonesian Red Cross, IFRC, ICRC and OCHA.
Those of you who cannot be there can follow the workshop on Storify, where most or all presentations will be made available: http://storify.com/SM4Resilience/social-media-for-resilience.
You can also follow the workshop via #sm4res.
