How to Follow the Expo Online

There is no doubt that this year's Global South-South Development Expo (#GSSD13) will be unique: not only will it be held for the first time in the Global South, but it will also be giving people a chance to participate virtually, from anywhere in the world. Here’s how:

  • Subscribe to the blog via RSS or via email updates to stay updated on what's going on at the Expo and get session summaries, interviews, updates on daily schedules and other relevant information. You can also receive timely updates through Facebook and Twitter.
  • Follow the sessions online in real-time through live notes and web-streaming. See the slides and other material that is presented at the sessions. Ask questions to the panelists remotely and join the discussions on social media. 

In addition, you can follow the Expo on an array of social media channels. Below you can find all the links to content related to the Expo on various social media channels. See the list organized by content type / social network.



The following links provide access to online sources where you can find resources related to the Expo. UNEP doesn't control or endorse all the resources that you can find at the sources listed below.
