What: Workshop: Recipes for inspiring Digital Revolutionaries: Flavours from the South
When: 14:00 – 16:15
Is there a secret recipe for protecting and enhancing the Open Web? We’ve already seen people power win countless battles for free speech and digital rights. If we can get those victories to multiply across borders – and from one activist kitchen to another – we believe there’s reason to be optimistic.
Tomorrow at the Stockholm Internet Forum, our Web We Want campaign is organising an event that will help activists mix up their tactics: “Recipes for inspiring Digital Revolutionaries: Flavours from the South”.
Our activism diet is becoming monotonous. It is almost always a petition, a banner in front of parliament or a #predictable social media campaign. We need to get better at acting quickly, creatively and with the right allies. And what better way to get inspired than take a look around the world at successful creative campaigns? You might be surprised by the ideas cultures around the world have come up with!
This interactive session will showcase original recipes for effective Internet activism from Latin America and Africa. You’ll learn how snails have led to better quality Internet access in Bolivia and how to create a sensual internet security mousse – to give just two examples. Each participant will receive their own activism cookbook, which contains nine recipes you can try at home (perhaps with local ingredients?). And, if you’re inspired, we’ll invite you to become part of our kitchen collective, which is preparing two more cookbooks collaboratively for our web-loving friends around the world.
This session is organised by Web We Want, with participation of its members. Tastiness guaranteed.
