Foundation Kicks Off "Websites for Liberals"
The Friedrich-Naumann-Foundation (FNF) conducted
a hands-on website development workshop for staff of members of
the Liberal Party (LP) from February 19 to 20, 2004 in Makati
City. The two-day seminar was the first in a series of activities
of the "Websites for Liberals" project that aims at getting more
Filipino liberals online.
"The center of all politics is communication,
and the Internet, though not a mainstream media today in this
country, is rapidly gaining importance," said Dr. Ronald
Meinardus, FNF-resident representative and one of the facilitators
of the workshop. He added that the Liberal Party, as a modern
and progressive political party, should harness the Internet as
a political communication tool.

Participants of the workshop were provided
with lectures and reference materials; they also engaged in actual
exercises on web writing, web information architecture and web
page design and started working on the websites of LP-politicians
soon to be uploaded.
The next activity of the "Websites for Liberals" project
is a two-day workshop titled "Writing news for websites and
newsletters" slated for March 18.-19. 2004 in Makati City.
