*What do have Egyptian mobilisations, garbage collector’s loafers posted on
Facebook and the petition against mobile phones recharging costs all have in
common? It is online engagement, or rather the use of the web, promoted by
citizens but also by institutions, politicians and the private sector. The
aim is to generate changes in real life, by interacting on the web. *
*Online engagement is the focus of the Take Action! International Panel.
Invited panelists, representing different sectors – Universities, NGOs,
Associations, Institutions and Politics – will discuss ways for citizens and
