A few more hours and TH!NK3, the third edition of the popular European blogging competition set up by the European Journalism Centre will kick off here in Brussels at the Vaudeville Café and then tomorrow in the Grande Place.
Previous editions have covered EU elections and Climate Change. This time it'll be sustainable development and global cooperation as we approach the UN meeting on the Millenium development goals staged in September.
This is my first time as a TH!NKer but Ireckon it'll be fun. The theme partially overlaps the what I usually cover as a reporter and I hope it'll actually push me to write more even for commercial outlets.
It'll also be a great chance for networking. Participating in the competition are many fellow journalists, journalism students,
academics and experts from 27 EU Member States, neighbourhood countries
We'll start posting on March 24, 2010 and on until 31
And did I mention there will be prizes?!
Top bloggers will get the chance to travel around the world and cover the issues from the field via reporting
expeditions to Asia, Africa and New York City!
