This is a quick update on a campaign I’ve been helping Ghana Decides with for Ghana’s upcoming December elections. It’s called the Ghana Decides Tag – modeled after the actual game of tag and the “Ghana Tag” series on Youtube – and basically it’s an opportunity for Ghanaians – at home and abroad – to share their views on what’s important for them this election year.
All you have to do is download the How-To guide from Ghana Decides, record yourself on video answering about five questions – and post the video online via youtube, facebook, twitter etc while tagging some of your friends to do their own videos!
Camera shy? Do it with a group of friends or make an audio recording instead! The best part? You have full creative liberation! Just make sure to include the hashtags #GHDTag and #GhanaDecides and also cc @GhanaDecides so it’s added to the GHDTag video playlist.
I won’t ramble on. Click here for a full description of the project and how to play. You can also check below for the demo video which gives a general overview on how the Ghana Decides Tag works and see some of the videos uploaded so far. Don’t have video equipment? Contact Ghana Decides to schedule a filming!
Each of us has a stake in Ghana’s future so how that future unfolds depends on each of us. Need I say more? Tag, YOU’RE IT! ;)
