Kep, Cambodia – March 2024 – The Don Bosco Kep centre in Cambodia, is currently hosting a seminar entitled "Communication on social media and voice of indigenous peoples for synodality", in which representatives of the media field from Mongolia, the Philippines, East Timor, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Myanmar, Nepal and Papua New Guinea are taking part. The seminar, which began on 10 March, will end on 20 March. At the opening of the workshop, participants wore their traditional indigenous costumes. In his welcome address, Fr Albeiro Rodas, Director of the centre, was in fact delighted to see the cultures of indigenous peoples represented. Subsequently, the indigenous people of Cambodia showed a characteristic ritual that they use to speak to their ancestors. The first session of the workshop then focused on breaking down communication barriers and the ease of translating into different languages thanks to Artificial Intelligence; while the second session was dedicated to the dissemination of news thanks to the 5W rule. After the Mass and a show created by the students of Don Bosco Kep, the participants ended the day in front of a bonfire, attending traditional dances.
