This intensive summer course is designed to help both researchers, activists and policy advocates gain new insights into the role civil society can play in advocating for a free and open internet. Through the course, participants will also learn digital tools for mobilizing and organizing constituencies and for enhancing their own online security and privacy, as well as that of activists and journalists.
The course will be organized with thematic sessions in the mornings and afternoon hands-on trainings and Internet Policy Lab. The sessions will, thus, feature a mix of lectures, group discussions, hands-on practicums, as well as a field trip within Budapest to meet with organizations engaged with work in this field at a local "hacktivist" space.
The course will focus heavily on hands-on trainings, including interesting and timely skills based opportunities to learn about the latest techniques in video advocacy, data visualization and infographics, social media campaigns, and other key tools needed to run effective internet policy advocacy campaigns and projects.
We will also allocate time to discuss global and international trends and actors in internet governance and media development such as the Internet Governance Forum and the International Telecommuncations Union involvement and interest in internet regulation.
