Humanitas360 brings debate about democratic participation during the WEF meeting in Davos
During the Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Humanitas360 was able to raise the voice of citizens and civil society shading light on the silent democratic crisis that the Venezuelan people currently faces by presenting a news series produced by Brazilian network Band TV. The well-received screening was followed by a panel discussion led by Simon Wilson, Editor, Europe Bureaux at BBC News, and that counted with the participation of Patrícia Villela Marino, Humanitas360 president, Yonca Brunini, who serves as the vice-president of Middle East and Africa at Google United Kingdom, Emily Bell, who serves as Professor and Director at Tow Center for Digital Journalism at Columbia University (USA). and Daniela Panaro, a Global Shaper from the Caracas hub.
The conversation was focused on current media distribution models, in particular when it comes to digital media in case of social sensitive issues. Eminent personalities from the media and business world, including some from Venezuela, participated.
In addition, Band TV covered its collaboration with Humanitas360 and the positive impact they generated in Davos by airing two stories on national television two nights in a row.
