Activism is essential to society, by documenting, monitoring and addressing violations and campaigning for change and political accountability, activists are crucial in the protection of the rights of all. Activists from all over the world face a variety of challenges within their daily work, however the three cases we will be focusing on for this lab are:
1) Protecting indigenous people and their forests in Brazil with Jair Condor
2) Democracy in Hong Kong with Joshua Wong from Hong Kong
3) The Human Rights Foundation (TBD)
Can innovative tech provide solutions for these cases? If you think so, come and join us with your thinking caps on. Tickets available here!
