Announcing the 2012 Global Voices Summit in Nairobi, Kenya

We're delighted to announce the Global Voices Citizen Media Summit 2012! Our gathering takes place this year in Nairobi, Kenya on July 2-3, 2012, in partnership with Nairobi's iHub.

On this site you'll find background information on previous Summits and the goals of the meeting – soon we'll be adding details on how you can register to attend. In the meantime, you can sign up  for Summit e-mail updates and we'll contact you when registration opens.

Over the next days and weeks we'll be fleshing out the program, adding speaker bios, a list of attendees and more — and do keep checking in at the site for blog posts and commentary from Summit participants and others, as well as to join in the conversation.
