Offer: Free Internet Safety Course in Beirut, Oct. 26-27

The Development Research Center is conducting training workshops in Securely Exchanging Information Through Technology for independent journalists, NGOs, and activists across the globe. In an interactive format over two days, this practical workshop provides an explanation of, and solutions for, threats that are most often faced when using information and communication technologies for advocacy work.

We are currently preparing to host a seminar October 26th and 27th 2011 in Beirut, Lebanon. The workshop itself is designed to have 20-30 participants and we expect to fill the slots very quickly so if you or anyone you may know is interested in attending I encourage you to register as soon as possible.

We charge no fees to our participants/students as this is part of our project funding.

Event registration can be completed here: http://encouragexchange-lebanon.eventbrite.com/

Thanks Breese. Is it

Thanks Breese.

Is it designed only for people who are in Lebanon ? Does it include people out of Lebanon and how about traveling costs?

Hi Sahar, I think anyone can

Hi Sahar,
I think anyone can register if they can get to Beirut for the conference. For help with travel costs, you could contact the organizers and see if they have any ideas. Check out their website and hopefully it will work out for you!
