Panel discussion
Date: Tuesday, 11th December 2012
Time: 18:30
Venue: Seidengasse 28/4, im Hof rechts, 1070 Wien

Within the frame oYUPF_UNAOC025f the United Nations Alliance of Civilization conference in February 2013 we are hosting the second of three events each addressing one of the conference’s topics.
At this event we will have a panel discussion, which will be followed by Q&A. We close the evening with a networking buffet.

We are going to discuss the following points:

  • Is there a global media society?
  • Should opinions, which disturb the public order, be restricted?
  • Is social media a waste of time, or a tool for democracy?

UNAOC Forum Vienna:
In February 2013 150 youth leaders from around the world will come to Vienna for the UNAOC (United Nations Alliance of Civilization) Vienna Youth Forum (http://www.unaoc.org).
Three main topics will be discussed:
1) Addressing the universal right to religious freedom and promoting a new religious pluralism through education
2) Media pluralism and diversity of media content and their contribution to fostering public debate, democracy and awareness of diverse opinions;
3) Shaping a new narrative for migration, integration and mobility in the global economy.
