World Social Media day is celebrated every year on June 30, 2019, across the world to bring to light the ever-growing influence of Social Media in people’s life. In Ahmedabad, it is now a tradition, to have ReDi Digital Dialogue organise thoughtful discussions on being responsibly digital, on this day. This time, on its 7th edition, ReDi witnessed a gathering of Experts, academicians and practitioners who talked on important topics like “Parenting in Digital Age”, “Impacting Sports Through Digital Integration” and “Using Digital Media for Governance”.

The line up of speakers included – Anupama Singh, Educationist & Principal at Jamnabai Narsee School, GIFT City, Vijay Shankar C4D officer, UNICEF India, Akshay Sethia, Founder Director & Chief Strategist at Dezine Brainz Digital, Prachi Mihir Shah, Parent Educator & Founder at The Milestone Preschool – all on whom were part of the panel discussion on ‘Parenting in Digital Age’. The discussion was moderated by Prof. Pradeep Mallik. The discussion brought out interesting observations and points with one over arching takeaway of ‘parents should work towards model behaviour, because children do, what children see.’ Furthermore, there were speaker sessions by Mukesh Kumar, Vice-Chairman & CEO, Gujarat Maritime Board, IAS (Gujarat 1996) and Sanjay Adesara CEO, Gujarat Fortune Giants on the topics of “Using Digital Media for Governance” and “Impacting Sports Through Digital Integration” respectively. Both the sessions were very well taken by the audience, as it was apparent from the engaging interaction that followed each talk.

Redi did not limit itself to lectures and discussions, they organised a special musical session by the terrific musical duo Shyamal-Saumil who premiered their new ‘Social Media Rap’, a Gujarati rap number on the day.
