ASEAN Corporate Sustainability Summit & Awards (ACSSA) 2014, Manila

It was indeed a wonderful experience to speak on ‘New Media and Sustainability’ at the ASEAN Corporate Sustainability Summit & Awards (ACSSA) 2014 on the 20th of March. Addressing a gathering of industry professionals, as well as representatives from the NGO sectors, I shared my views on a  topic that is of particular importance in this day and age, when a lot of the messaging is through social media.

I shared with practical examples, how new media can be a very useful channel, and in some cases critical for various purposes such as sharing ecological intelligence, communicating with stakeholders, empowering the audience to make decisions, enabling behaviour and culture change, canvassing and crowdsourcing as well as managing crises and increasing resilience.  In the Q & A we also talked about measuring the impact of our social media engagement. All in all, a well attended session with great feedback from the participants and the organisers.
