Mid-May in Tunisia

We are in Tunis this week leading a series of “training of trainers” sessions at DSS 216 , the Digital Security School set up by eQualitie in conjunction with our friends at Alternatives, the long-established Montreal NGO. The school is staffed by co-ordinators from across the Middle East and North Africa and operates in Arabic and French. It has been created as a permanent hub for digital security trainers to share cybersecurity tools and best practices with activists and journalists from the Maghreb region and beyond, with a particular focus on Women, Youth, Citizen Journalists and legal practitioners from Iraq, the Palestinian Territories, Tunisia, Sudan and Syria. You can read the press release here (en francais)

This is the second in a series of digital security schools which eQualitie are creating across the world. Our first one was started in Vilnius, Lithuania three years ago and in that time has trained hundreds of activists, journalists and trainers from Belarus. Please get in touch if you’re from that region and interested in trainings. Stay tuned for announcements on school number 3 later in the year
