GLOBAL PARTNERS DIGITAL is organising a Cyber policy Training Programme for rights activists, cyber policy makers and others working towards Internet governance .
It has announced an open call for applications from Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean to participate in an applied training programme on cyber policy issues.
Global Partner Digital is looking for civil society actors interested in engaging in cyber policymaking processes and building their expertise on cyber policy, human rights and strategic advocacy.
Launched earlier this year, the programme is focused on making cyber policymaking processes around the world more inclusive by building capacity and advocacy skills, and fostering stronger collaboration in developing rights-respecting cyber policies.
The training will build the capacity of civil society participants to increase their knowledge on cyber policy issues and improve their advocacy skills to bring a human rights perspective to policymaking debates.
Up to 50 participants from Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean will be selected to participate in the overall training programme, which will consist of two stages:
- Online training: a series of videos and accompanying interactive Q&A sessions covering the different modules of the curriculum outlined below (June-July).
- In-person training: led by experts, providing practical advocacy and communication skills, tailored to regional needs (3-4 days, date tbd in September/October).
