Online spaces are vital to successful organising in the modern world. Never has this been more true than during the coronavirus crisis. However, operating within these spaces in not without risk, exposing activists and organisers to a whole host of potential harms.

This workshop offers practical advice for both individuals and organisations to keep ourselves safe from harassment, having personal information leaked, or private conversations de-contextualised and amplified.

Speakers:

Cade is a weaponised designer, anti design ethicist, tech pessimist and the founder of The New Design Congress, a non-profit organisation developing a nuanced understanding of technology's role as a social, political and environmental accelerant.

Sponsoring Organisations:

Working directly with grassroots activists, Common Knowledge design digital tools that make radical change possible
