Applications open for Spanish social media workshop in Lima

As Lima comes into the spotlight and the world focuses its attention on such critical issues as climate change, sustainability, food security and land use, CIFOR is helping to give people a voice in the conversation by organizing a social media workshop – in Spanish.

CIFOR and Peru’s Ministry of the Environment are partnering on the workshop, which aims to build participants’ skills and knowledge of popular social media tools such as Facebook, Twitter, blogging – tools that, when used strategically, can be very powerful for increasing presence and community engagement.

The workshop will run on 4 and 5 December. Participants will then get a chance to practice their skills by covering the Global Landscapes Forum, a major conference held on 6 and 7 December on the sidelines of the UN climate talks, and publishing their blogs on

Spaces are limited and by application only. For more information on curriculum and how to apply, see Taller de redes sociales.
