Digital Activism Workshop
November 20, 2021 @ 15:30 - 17:00 CETFree
📣The struggle for social justice is no longer just in the streets, it must also be present in digital spaces.
💻 Join us for a hybrid workshop (digital + physical at DOGA in Oslo) – led by activists from the Global South – that aims to equip activists with tools and concepts required to successfully execute digital activism campaigns. The workshop will cover concrete tools for creating, executing, adjusting, and measuring collective digital activism campaigns that aid real social changes.
📱 The workshop arrives at a time in which civil society actors have to adjust (both short-term but also long-term) to restrictions of the civic space brought by COVID-19. Demonstrations, assemblies, and even freedom of movement will be affected for a long time. As this accelerates the adoption and naturalization of online public discussions and decision-making, there is a need for a new wave of digital activists who are ready to face the unexpected consequences of the economic and social crisis already brewing, ready to strengthen civil society as a whole, and who are prepared to mobilize to channel unrest in ways that are effective and do not put populations at risk.
This workshop is created in solidarity with those with unequal access to digital tools during these changing times – and will be anchored through the lens of the experiences from the global South (specifically the experiences in Latin America).
This workshop will be a condensed version of the “Latin American School of Digital Activism,” which was recently conducted by Fundación Ciudadano Inteligente (Smart Citizen Foundation – Santiago, Chile) across Latin America as part of their work with their network of activists. The workshop will be hosted by Fundación Ciudadano Inteligente (Chile) and the Karibu Foundation (Norway).
