Interactive TV

In a special cooperation led by the French European WomenAction 2000 partner, Les Penelopes, Womenaction 2000 will provide a one hour daily interactive TV broadcast. One or several guests will comment in English, French and Spanish, on the event each day, and reportages made by an audiovisual team covering the conference will contribute to the on-line discussion. The on-line chatroom will broaden and enrich the next day's discussion. People will be able follow the discussions and contribute whether or not they are actually attending the meeting. Background texts, texts written at the time of the program and still photos taken during the meeting will make up the rest of the online broadcast. The program will be archived and stored on Internet, at least until October 2000. This program will be available on Penelopes' program named Cyberfemmes. The footage produced will be re-packaged and made into educational TV and video material. (See press release Cyberfemmes at Beijing +5 in English and French)

A coalition of African media NGOs will produce a French and English language daily newspaper concentrating on African issues. This follows the success of The Flamme newspaper which was produced at the 6th African Regional Conference on Women held in Addis Ababa in November 1999. This is an important contribution to increasing the visibility of African issues during the Special Session.
