Parallel Lives

Focus on South America

Day 9 of the 10-day Parallel Lives programme – Focus on South America

Central & South America or Latin America, continues to be a little known part of the world. The mainstream media often focus on the negative aspects of life on the continent, with politics and personalities dominating the headlines. But what of the people who live in each country. How do we get their stories told? Social media platforms can play a positive role in giving people both a voice but also a shop window to show their world to those on the outside.
