Connecting civil society to defend democratic freedoms in the digital era

CIVICUS is an Alliance of more than 12,500 individual and organisational members, globally distributed, mainly across the Global South working to strengthen people power. With new technologies emerging and digital engagement opportunities arising, the time had come to move from a centralized to a more distributed model of engagement. In 2020, CIVICUS embarked on a journey to co-design a solution that could bring members together in a safe way.

In this session, we will be sharing the case of the CIVICUS Online community as a good example of the intersection between Human-centred Design, digital technologies and civic action, while addressing diversity, equity and inclusion. Participants will learn about tools, methods, and resources available to leverage digital technologies and innovation to advance their own community building, mobilisation, and collective action goals in a digital oriented landscape.
