NetRightsNG Holds Session at Lagos Social Media Week

The Nigerian Internet Rights Coalition will host a session at the upcoming Lagos Social Media Week (SMW) on “Digital Rights and Freedom Bill for Nigeria”. The session will take place at Landmark Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos on February 26, 2015 by 1.30pm to 2.30pm.

With the hastag #SMWNetRightsNG, the coalition is planning to have a highly engaging event that would give an opportunity to debate on issues of Internet Freedom in Nigeria, especially the role of social media in charting a course for Internet Freedom.  #SMWNetRightsNG aims to educate Nigerians on the subject of internet freedom in Nigeria, promote freedom of expression and association online, promote access to development through technology, safeguard the digital liberty of Nigerians now and in the future, contribute to democracy and advance Nigeria’s leadership in Africa on technology.

 It is hoped that the event would also help to spread the #NetRightsNG message across participants’ networks and raise advocate for the digital rights and freedom bill in the right circles.

The SMW is a weeklong conference that takes place in cities around the world and it seeks to share ideas on how social media and technology is affecting the world. SMW Lagos was launched in 2013 with Lagos being the first African city to host the international conference. To date over 15,000 people have participated in the now annual conference and more than 400,000 people have engaged with SMW Lagos content online. The global theme for the February 2015 edition of Social Media Week sponsored by Microsoft is Upwardly Mobile: the Rise of the Connected Class.
