Event description

Description

Course facilitated by Emergency Planning College

Duration 1 day

Don’t be swept along in the wake of social media. If you're not equipped to use social media to influence public behaviour in emergencies (including spontaneous volunteering) then you have already surrendered the initiative.

As social media gives rise to citizen and social journalism, news stories of disasters and emergencies break instantly, not just in the UK but reaching far across the globe. Social networks are part of our every day life and you could find yourself on the back foot if you are not using these networks as a vital communication and surveillance tool, not only to gather intelligence but to build shared situational awareness.

Audience

This Cabinet Office endorsed workshop is relevant for everyone working in the resilience profession as the social media dimension is part of the soundtrack of disaster management.
