Global Solidarity in the Digital Era: ICN Webinar Series

October 5, 2023 11:00 am

to October 11, 2023 11:00 am




This two-part series on digital technologies and international solidarity brought to you by the Inter-Council Network of Provincial and Regional Councils for International Cooperation explores the effects of rapidly evolving digital technologies on international solidarity. Global solidarity is fundamentally important at a time of precarity and crises. In an increasingly networked world, technologies play an immense role in global solidarity. They provide the tools to organize and advocate around decolonization, anti-racism, feminisms and other equity-seeking projects. Paradoxically, these tools can both facilitate and threaten this work. This webinar examines such complexities and provides insights around the ethical use of digital tools in solidarity work. The first session (October 5, 2023) will feature experts who will broadly reflect on what changing digital landscape means for international solidarity work more broadly. The second session (October 11, 2023), focusing specifically on communications, will feature experts who will explore ethical communications in international solidarity work in the age of evolving technologies.
