EngageMedia, the Association for Progressive Communications (APC), and the Southeast Asian Press Alliance (SEAPA) will be hosting COCONET, a Southeast Asia Digital Rights camp. Nayantara from the Internet Democracy Project will be attending the camp.

COCONET (Connecting Communities & Networks) aims to enhance regional networking, and to build collaborations with organisations that can help expand and popularise digital rights issues. The camp hopes to connect members of the digital rights community to media and technology-makers, as well as to grassroots digital activists, as a way to expand the social reach, and social movements, engaged with digital rights issues. The camp will use a participatory methodology.

Update: Nayantara presented our project Gendering Surveillance, and a forthcoming resource website on online abuse called Don’t Let It Stand’, and facilitated a workshop on capacity building around understanding networks.
