Over dit evenement

“Access Denied: Click to claim your civic space” is one of a number of RNW Media’s activities supporting SPEAK!, a global campaign launched in 2017 by CIVICUS, to help give a voice to everyone, everywhere.

The digital space offers enormous potential for young people to come together and connect. However, network disruptions and large-scale shutdowns have become increasingly common. RNW Media envisions a world where young people in restrictive settings confidently claim their rights, assume their places in society and shape better futures for themselves. This vision can only be realised when freedom of expression and assembly is safe-guarded.

What are the implications for the real lives of young people when their access to online spaces is cut or limited? What is the impact on (re)building inclusive societies in fragile or polarised settings?

Our Speak! event will bring together pioneers and experts in the field of digital rights, civic inclusion and freedom of speech, including representatives from our teams in Libya, Burundi and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Together, we will look at on-the-ground realities of digital rights violations and discuss possible, sustainable solutions that can work locally.

The event will conclude with the opportunity to network with top donors, thinkers and activists fighting for (online) civic space. You can find more information on our website.
