Join Rising Voices, Social Media Exchange (SMEX) and the New Tactics online
community for an online dialogue on *Physical spaces as catalysts for
greater digital citizen
August 8 to 14, 2012.

physical space to encourage and empower greater digital citizen
Although the internet has provided new ways for people to work together
virtually, people are finding complementary energy from working
face-to-face. Mobilizers and mentors for users of these spaces have a
commitment to see their local communities become more active through the
use of digital tools.
This dialogue is an opportunity to exchange innovative examples of how
these physical spaces are being used as catalysts for greater citizen
