Hans Rosling, professor of global health at Sweden's Karolinska Institute, recently stated that despite the wide availability of data in the world, there is a significant gap in local access to this knowledge. In this panel, experts in media development and mobile technology will discuss how information is shared in low-bandwidth environments. The panel will include case studies, interactive discussion about the sharing of news and information in areas of limited web connectivity, and tips on how to deal with issues of security, trust and safety. Examples include creative, interactive radio broadcasts; training and engagement of citizen journalists via SMS; and the challenges of maintaining data integrity in regions of high risk reporting. The session will end with a discussion of trending issues related to connectivity, such as offline participation in social media and the emergence of sensor networks.
