Please tell us about the World Influencers and Blogger Association and its mission?
WIBA represents a community of bloggers and influencers that reach out to 100 million followers on social media (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, TikTok, Youtube). We are a multi-facet and fast-growing organization that integrates the Association, WIB Academy, WIBA Promo Lab, WB Agency, Digital Contest, and our flagship event - World Influencers and Bloggers Award. We are a people’s voice and an efficient way to reach across generations, across all genders, races, and nationalities, and across all continents, speaking different languages and representing diverse backgrounds and professions.
We align, motivate, and educate bloggers. We spread critical messages aimed at the better future of our planet and humanity. We hold events and campaigns to celebrate and promote the influencers' unique power and build and operate the first world-class platform for the more articulate people’s voice and the globe’s new age media - the influencers. As part of our mission, WIBA harnesses its unbiased power for a better future of the world.
So, WIBA represents tremendous potential – to reach out to and help raise the awareness of 100 million or more people worldwide. It is this potential that we want to turn into a wide-reaching power to act, to change the world for the better, to help bring about universal peace, justice, and equal opportunities for all. The influencers share a part of themselves, their lives, communicating, making an impact, and connecting with their audience to help others and inspire them to action.
What are the areas of the WIBA activity?
They are human rights, children's safety, anti-bullying, equal opportunity, non-discrimination, digital tolerance and cyber-anti-bullying, gender issues and women’s empowerment, clean planet and climate action, and preservation of the world’s cultural heritage, healthy lifestyle and spacial justice.
And referred to above, what are your objectives?
We unite bloggers to grow and harness their potential to make the unbiased voice of the people heard; to transmit and promote critical issues from our agenda for the sake of our planet and humanity. And also to partner with the world’s international organizations and causes to grow synergy that will make a change. WIBA calls on bloggers to demonstrate their social responsibility and join our social media campaign.
