Jon delvers his keynote at BBC CoJo
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, the 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 that are important to them, was a fascinating presentation of local journalism in action.
I spoke about the development of the mojo concept through schools and to MSM. You can listen to an Audioboo interview I did with Adam Perry from Media Trust.
