Community Engagement Going Global

Rising Voices, a project of Global Voices Online, launches another round of micro grants to bring underrepresented voices to the global conversation. The project places media tools into the hands of those who have little or no access to participate in civic dialogue.

BBC World’s Have Your Say has also taken the idea of community engagement global with its World Challenge project, in partnership with Newsweek. The competition has been going strong since 2005, soliciting creative solutions to local problems around the world.
