Event Description

The Geneva Forum on Social Change (GFSC) is a free-of-charge annual event organized by the University of Geneva’s International Organisations MBA programme (IOMBA).
The theme for the 2011 forum is Social Media for Social Change (SM4SC). The forum will explore the potential of social media as a driving force for tackling global challenges. It will also:

  • Showcase innovative initiatives where individuals, NGOs, International Organizations, and businesses have used social media to engage with local and global communities, connect ideas, and create networks of awareness and change
  • Address the challenges facing social media as a truly revolutionary movement
  • Give attendees practical tools via free social media workshops to leverage social media in their own lives and organizations to increase social impact.
  • Show a number of quality films and documentary media throughout the event that tap into the theme of social media for social change.
  • Provide a structured forum for networking and connecting with likeminded people.
  • Provide an ongoing online community for dialogue on social media for social change after the event.
