To balance the noise around the issue with professional perspectives and to seek ways to social solidarity, the Democracy Today NGO invited a meeting between interested NGOs, citizen and members of governmental agencies.

Training on activism, social media and conflict resolution What can I do if something is wrong in my community? Does my voice matter? What is the use use of knowledge?
