Active Citizenship Workshop Series

Our goal is to strengthen civil society’s ability to address challenges such as disinformation, transparency and accountability. Up to 45 participants from Eastern Partnership Countries will be selected for an interactive training course with experts in social media campaigns, digital storytelling, community engagement, internet security, data analysis, media literacy, and combating disinformation.

Participants are expected to actively build on the training by applying the knowledge and skills obtained in their countries and in their organizations. The virtual training program will include quizzes and a graduation project due one month after the end of the training.
