We did say it would happen. So here’s the plan:
With the awesome experience of Buffer Zone Bloggers in mind, CCMC is organising a live-link up with the Council of the European Union to connect Cyprus-based bloggers and online activists with European counterparts participating in an event under the auspices of the Cyprus Presidency of the EU (see previous blog post).
On Thursday 26 July, from 11am to 1pm, the CCMC Community Space will be open for online activists to ‘hang out’ with the bloggers in Brussels through four ‘Google Hangouts’ (http://www.google.com/+/learnmore/hangouts/).
The four discussions will be structured around the thematic priorities of the Presidency:
- Europe, more efficient and sustainable;
- Europe, with a better performing and growth economy;
- Europe, more relevant to its citizens, with solidarity and social cohesion;
- Europe in the world, closer to its neighbours.
In addition to the Hangouts, bloggers and tweeters are encouraged to use the hashtag – #cy2012eublogs – to propose and comment on the issues under discussion. Please reference @CCMCCyprus if you do connect to the meeting so we can track the contributions coming from the Buffer Zone.
For more info on the event go to http://www.consilium.europa.eu/cy2012eublogs.
Look forward to seeing you there!
