Sponsored by USIP and the Independent Television Service (ITVS),  the Media
as Global Diplomat series of summits has highlighted the changing role of
today's media in public diplomacy and peacebuilding since 2009. This year's
summit, *Media that Moves Millions *, will look at the unprecedented
phenomena of user-generated media campaigns that have inspired masses of
participants and rocked political systems. The first part of the event will
feature activists from such campaigns as We Are All Khaled Said, Half the
Sky, Kony 2012 and A Million Voices Against the FARC, as we seek to better
understand why they were able to mobilize civil society so successfully.
The second portion of the day will offer hands-on instruction by experts
from Facebook, Twitter, Text Haiti 9099 and Indiegogo to individuals and
organizations alike seeking to use the ever-expanding toolkit of media for
social change and peacebuilding.

the livestream broadcast on-site. In addition to watching the panels live,
