How to connect with RightsCon Tunis from anywhere
The planning is done. The event is set. The speakers are ready. The wait is over… RightsCon Tunis is here!
We are once again bringing together a global community of the world’s leading experts to tackle all the most important issues at the intersection of human rights and technology. Sometimes bigger really is better and this year is no exception, being our largest RightsCon summit yet! We have managed to pack 17 thematic tracks and 450+ sessions into three intensive days. From the regulation of facial recognition, to disinformation in democratic societies, we’ve got it covered.
However, we are also conscious that many members of the global digital rights movement won’t be able to physically join us Tunisia. We want you to know that even if you can’t be in the room, your voice is just as important in helping us build a better future for everyone in digital age. The conversations happening online reverberate in the halls of RightsCon each year, and will ultimately be the most important catalyst for continuing the work long after the closing ceremony.
With this in mind, here’s how you can stay connected with the RightsCon community from anywhere in the world:
Those participating in the event, including key speakers, will be live-tweeting their insights, reactions, and questions on all the most pressing topics around human rights in the digital age. We encourage you to join in the conversation on Twitter with the official #RightsCon hashtag. To keep up with #BestOfRightsCon highlights, we recommend you follow the official @RightsCon and @AccessNow accounts on Twitter. Furthermore, we will be running the RightsCon Translation Lab in collaboration with Meedan, Global Voices Lingua, and Localization Lab to translate the best tweets of RightsCon to Arabic, French, and Spanish.
Follow our official Access Now Facebook page for key updates and materials related to RightsCon. We also encourage you to use the RightsCon Tunis event page as a space to generate conversation on anything related to the topics covered at the summit.
Don’t forget we are on Instagram too! If you want to follow the conference in a more visual sense, we will be capturing the RightsCon vibe, all our favorite stickers, and more fun highlights from every corner of RightsCon.
This year’s official program is your one-stop shop for all information and resources related to RightsCon, to make sure you stay on top of the important issues being discussed. The program is jam-packed with the latest research and tools in development, advocacy efforts from local communities, and all the most pressing questions on the future of human rights in the digital age. We encourage you to reach out to the relevant community members and speakers to strike up a conversation and connect about your work.
Thank you for being a part of the journey to a more rights-respecting world.
