As part of the The Civics and Media Project, each day we will be sharing one speaker’s presentation from the Workshop 3 session titled ‘10 speakers, 5 minutes, 1 slide’. Workshop 3 was held on Thursday, 19 November 2015, at the Royal Society of New Zealand in Wellington.
Today, we share with you Dr Siouxsie Wiles’s presentation. Speakers were asked to present three ideas on how we might achieve a well-informed civil society in 2030. Below are Dr Siouxsie’s ideas.
Hear more about her three ideas in his presentation below. The presentations are also available to view on our YouTube channel.
We would like to acknowledge all the speakers and participants; their input was critical. The speakers were Dame Dr Claudia Orange, Dr Carwyn Jones, Jane Wrightson,
Dr Helen Sissons, Dr Siouxsie Wiles, Louise Green, Terry Burrell, Tara Ross, Sylvia Nissen and James Dunne.
The Civics and Media Project Booklet
The primary output of the workshop series will take the form of a booklet. This aims to be an influential think piece, building knowledge on how we might work, together or separately, to ensure that a well-informed, civically engaged society exists in 2030. The booklet will be launched on 26 February 2016 and will be distributed widely. If you would like to receive a copy of the booklet, please email us at email@example.com.
Project work programme for 2016
After the publication of the booklet in February 2016, our first additional output will be in Policy Quarterly. The Civics and Media Project has been given space for three articles in the May issue to articulate our findings and inform the policy community. The focus after that will be the World Journalism Education Congress, which will be held in Auckland from 14 to 16 July 2016. The project sponsors have been invited both to attend the conference and to present a session discussing the ways forward that were developed throughout the workshop series.
