Social Media Exchange
Country or Region: 

I'm a former journalist turned digital media trainer. I've spent the last few years in Lebanon establishing and running Social Media Exchange, a Lebanese NGO that trains civil society organizations and individuals working for change in the strategic use of digital and social media. At SMEX, we host on-site and online trainings, produce guides, and are now working on a new approach to online learning about social media for advocacy called NetHawwal, which means "we transform" or "we change," in Arabic. The course will be in English and Arabic. Finally, we're also in the early stages of forming a professional network for digital and social media trainers around the region. If this is something you'd be interested in learning more about, please let me know.
