Panel: Digital Activism

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This panel will focus on why we need to protect the best of the internet (e.g. oppressed and marginalised people building a platform/organising communities for change) while we regulate against the worst of the internet (online hate, disinformation), and how we can best do that. 

Four veteran campaigners from different fields will share their insights. Moderated by Kathy Errington, Executive Director of the Helen Clark Foundation.
