AfricTivistes Academy

AfricTivistes Academy is a repository of teaching and learning resources for citizen participation and engagement, good governance, technological innovation, civic tech and democracy. In addition to being a community for sharing knowledge and good practice, this academy dedicated to e-learning on the AfricTivistes platform responds to a public demand. Through these e-learning programmes and our interactive quizzes, AfricTivistes is exploring an innovative approach that combines Edu-Action (education, action, impact) and aligns with the values that guide our actions and our vision. Our mission is rooted in the desire to make access to knowledge and learning catalysts for participatory democracy.

Since 2017, AfricTivistes has been rolling out a series of training courses on cyber-security and responsible use of the internet to make up for the lack of digital literacy and techno-phobia. This practical and theoretical training programme is aimed at civil society media players, pro-democracy activists, professional journalists, artists and opinion leaders. After a ten-year long in-person phase, the programme is being rolled out online to make the educational content accessible to a wider audience, particularly young social media users.

The programme includes modules on how to secure your online environment, how to surf safely and anonymously, how to encrypt your data and how to secure online communication, etc.

The courses, practical exercises and situations relating to online safety and protection can be accessed free of charge by registering on the dedicated platform.
