There are challenges and opportunities in virtual reality, live and immersive media for social good. New WITNESS projects aim to channel this empathy into meaningful action.
YouTube’s blurring function allows users to blur select items such as faces or identifying information. In this post we will show you how to use the tool.
We discuss why visual anonymity is important for protecting activists using video for change & look at YouTube’s newly improved blurring functionality.
How can we use the power of live video to connect people to the causes they care about, & provide immediate & meaningful ways to act by using their skills?
How can emerging tech tools like live-streaming or task routing apps be used to connect communities of support with activists on the ground in real time?
Details for the two panels WITNESS is participating in and our suggestions a few more to check out at this year’s conference.
