As part of our collaboration with Awareness with Human Action (AHA!), and with the support of the European Union, we conducted 10 capacity building training sessions for civil society members and activists across Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, and Sri Lanka on understanding media literacy and creating positive digital content to combat hate speech and promote social cohesion.
The participants were given a broad understanding of media literacy, including concepts like mis/disinformation, fake news, online harassment, hate speech and online safety and privacy. The participants also learned how to create positive online content to share important social messages. They were taught how to develop video scripts, film and edit videos on their mobile phones using basic editing software, as well as share content safely and responsibly ensuring their digital privacy.
