In Austria — but also online –, ibiblio alum Mark McCarthy will be a panelist at the conference The United Nations and the New Media/Information Age: Education for the Next Generation of “the People of the United Nations”

Mark’s panel, “New-Media Mediated Peace Building & Societal Development”, will take place between 4 pm and 6 pm Austrian time or 10 am and noon US Eastern Time. I tried their video test stream and it looks like it will work just fine (it’s on the conference home page; give it a try)>

Mark will be talking about his work with in “ReliefWeb and the Role of Information in Humanitarian Response”
