In June 2011, Seven Human Rights Activists visited Geneva to talk about the impact of new media and internet activism in their countries.

The United States Mission and the Institute for Media and Global Governance (IMGG) nominated seven "Internet Freedom Fellows:" writers, bloggers and journalists from around the world who are using social media, mobile communications and digital networks to promote human rights at the grass roots level. The Fellows spent three days in Geneva June 8-10, 2011 in discussions with diplomats, NGOs and international organizations before going to Washington D.C. for a similar program.

The fellows participated in a special June 9, 2011 event during the U.N. Human Rights Council which was broadcast via the CO.NX. Video of the full session is available at: https://statedept.connectsolutions.co...

The U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights covered the program in an article on their website:
