Call for Participants: Online Workshops “My Privacy – Your Safety”

UNITED for Intercultural Action is organising a series of online workshops on online privacy and safety, with the financial support of the European Youth Foundation of the Council of Europe. The workshops aim to increase the capacity of human rights activists and their organisations in protecting their privacy online and to develop a manual offering relevant knowledge and tips for this target group. 

Participants who fully participate in the workshop will receive a certificate from UNITED. The training is fully supported, no participant fee or other costs apply. 

Programme and Dates

The workshop is designed to be delivered in 3 days (one day per week), starting with an educational focus and then continuing with the collaborative drafting of a manual. The programme offers a great opportunity to get concrete inputs about online privacy and safety, to exchange information and experience, and to work together and create a network with activists from across Europe. Each training day will start at 9:00 and end before 16:00 (CET).

The workshops are organised in three rounds (the first round has been completed), with the same content and methodology for each round. The applicants can select one or more of the following options:

2nd round: 28 April, 5 May and 12 May 2021

3rd round: 19 May, 26 May and 2 June 2021
