The BBC College of Journalism Connecting Communities conference at which I spoke about NT Mojo was a resounding success.
Run in conjunction with Citizenside the citizen press agency from France, discussion was centred around hyper-local and how citizen communities can create their own voice.
Jon Kingsbury a director from NESTA and former BBC Head of Future Media and Technology was an exciting Keynote who’s theme of hyper-local sustainability was the hot topic of the day.
The Bespoke project which highlights the work of a team of citizen journalists reporting from their local community in Preston on issues of importance to them, encapsulated the days theme of connecting communities.
I spoke about the development of the mojo concept through schools and to MSM. You can listen to an Audioboo interview with Adam perry from Media Turst.
