Med Dialogue for Rights and Equality Programme is organising the “Hack to act” Hackathon on 8 – 11 July 2021 in Tunis. This event is designed to help CSOs engage into new forms of activism working with IT developers and designers. Civil society activists must apply before 22 April 2021.

The Med Dialogue Programme is providing a digital civic space for up to 45 young activists, tech professionals and designers from Mashrek and Maghreb countries, working as “Hack Teams”, to build relationships across borders and to design efficient digital tools aiming at developing sustainable democracy, promoting human rights and contributing to reforms and democratic changes in their home countries.

The event is part of the “Hack to Act” Programme which aims at supporting the digital space and technology’s capacities as a tool for socio-political change. The programme is addressed to democracy activists who use the “Digital civic space” and new technologies to promote democracy through citizens’ activism.

Med Dialogue for Rights and Equality is an EU-funded Technical Assistance Programme with the overall objective to strengthen the role of CSOs active at the regional scale, in building sustainable development, regional cohesion and resilience, as well as in influencing policy-making in the Southern Neighbourhood and the Euro-Mediterranean Space.
