120 million Africans are online via social media. Online is a new tool to better tell the story of Ghana to the world, to do business and to do this with a freedom. It is a place where we can protest and where we have power. But, exactly how powerful is the world of online when it comes to media? What kinds of standards do we have? How are women treated in this brave, new digital world? What types of stories are we able to tell through digital media?
#reImagineGH:stories, standards, sex is in its 2nd year. We examine the world of ONLINE. Our theme is the 4 Ps: POWER, PROTEST, PROFIT, PAIN.
In its first year, this premier Ghana media summit was a trending topic in Ghana, and attracted media features on air, on TV and online from Starr FM, Joy FM, Citi FM, GHOne and The Spin.
