“Food for Thought” Breakfast Session: How to make WhatsApp work for Media
08:00 to 10:00 - 16 July 2019
Tshimologong Precinct, 41 Juta St, Johannesburg, 2001

Our fourth breakfast event was held in partnership with the ​Journalism and Media Lab (jamlab), the panel discussion focused on ways to make WhatsApp work for media and civil society organisations.

WhatsApp is the most widely used app in South Africa but the least used channel by South African media. During this breakfast session, we brought together some of the people who have been making this platform work and are trying to address the misinformation that also flows on it.

Our Speakers
  • Phillip de Wet - Associate editor at Business Insider South Africa
  • Kate Wilkinson - Acting Deputy Chief Editor at Africa Check
  • Koketso Moeti - Founding Executive Director at Amandla.mobi!

The CTIN monthly “food for thought” breakfast sessions are intended to offer a platform for collective information sharing / shared learning; profiling (and analysing) of innovative initiatives and practices; topical civic tech community conversations; and networking.
