  1. Share on emerging technologies/platform for citizen friendly story telling
  2. Identify techniques and strategies of increasing uptake and profiling of citizen-authored stories by privately owned media houses
  3. Enhance the quality of data and evidence based citizens’ storytelling on diverse media platforms
