Safety Training Workshop for Bloggers and human rights defenders.
Pakistan Press Foundation (PPF) invites applications for a three-day security training workshop in Lahore for bloggers and human rights defenders. The training will include sessions on physical, digital and psycho-social security.
A look at the changing landscape of threats to freedom of expression shows that the threats are increasingly becoming more sophisticated. Where once physical threats were predominant, now digital threats and intimidation through other means is leading to self-censorship of the press and of civil society actors. The holistic training is designed to develop skills of the participants to secure themselves in each of these different kinds of threats, enabling them to perform their democratic function in a safer manner.
We are now accepting nominations for the sixth workshop scheduled for July 31st to August 2nd in Lahore. All expenses related to participation in the workshop will be covered by Pakistan Press Foundation.
The deadline for receiving CVs from those interested in participating in the sixth training workshop in Lahore is Friday July 23, 2021
Those who wish to attend the workshop can send their CVs and links to their blogs to email@example.com,
Selected participants need to send their COVID-19 vaccination certificate to confirm their place in the workshop.
