OUR AIM IS TO
Interest activists in technology for transparency
Help them understand how tech can help achieve their goals
Empower activists to work with tech experts
BARRIERS WE OVERCOME
Activists are often afraid that:
TECH FOR TRANSPARENCY IS TOO ADVANCED!
The language used by techies makes it impossible to even start
Training offered in this area often prove to be too difficult because:
Repetition of facts without context is not useful to practitioners
Programs are often overloaded with information
At the end of a course, participants still don’t know where to start
COMMUNICATION BETWEEN EXPERTS
Civic activists and tech specialists often don’t understand each other:
WE TEACH HOW TO:
ACHIEVE YOUR MISSION
with smart use of technology
to get evidence & a clear understanding of problems
to engage people
TransparenCEE Data Advocacy for Change education program is based on three principles:
Introducing activists to the fundamentals of data during offline workshops designed for strengthening open attitudes, acquiring basic expertise and building skills on cooperating with experts.
Conducting offline workshops lead by two equally important experts:
- Data expert
- Adult education expert
Inviting the alumni of workshops to join the TransparenCEE network and use social media and Slack channels to keep them engaged in the community.
