Learnings from DFID on using a Google+ hangout for global video chat with a minister and others:

Google Hangouts offer a great opportunity to broadcast discussions and events to the world for free. At the Department for International Development (DFID) we are working to get the issue of Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting (FGM/C) on the global agenda. For the International Day for Zero Tolerance to FGM/C on 6 February, Development Minister Lynne Featherstone joined the United Nations for a Google Hangout to engage people around the world.

There were clear benefits.The Hangout generated worldwide engagement on an under reported issue. There were 2,493 clicks for the event which was viewed live by people from over 100 different countries. And, the beauty is by having the discussion on your YouTube channel it can be used as a tool long after the event.
