The USAID Collaborative Governance Program (CGP), with co-funding of the U.S. Embassy, provided a final seminar “PR and media tools for CSOs” on May 16, which was one of a series of one-day seminars conducted for CSOs in all regions of the country in April-May 2017. During the seminar, 13 representatives of 7 CSOs from Talas oblast learned such new PR and media tools as Internet communications, user generated content, practical work on placing content in social media, and using instruments such as Google analytics, Google share drive, Google translate, and Google slide share. CGP also conducted a session on rules and principles of working with media, presented the latest M-VECTOR media survey data, which the CSOs will use for selecting media partners, and held a practical session on drafting news as civic journalists to submit to AKIpress, Vecherney Bishkek, Zanoza and other Information Agencies that have free access for reporting online
