July 7 - 9. 2016
What We Do
We provide young web activists tools, training and coaching for great results
Digital Storytelling, Social Media & Internet Security
We organize training for young people at Yole!Africa and some at Goma's most respected University where we teach them basics of blogging, online storytelling, Social Media Marketing and even internet security. The training takes part during our pre-summit and even on other occasions, according to the need.
Connecting locals among them and to the world
Our summit is an opportunity for local activists who never met before to connect and imagine possibilities of collaboration. We also connect them to some of the most successful activists accross the continent and in the world. If possible, we invite them to Goma or organize skype discussions for mutual inspiration.
Working on action plan and advising on its implementation
At the end of the summit, participants work on an action plan to be implemented during the year based on a priority. But participants also advise each other when planning activities promoting human rights and democracy.
What they say
Top leading panafrican activists say what they think of the Goma Web Activism Summit
Head of Africtivistes.org
A democracy without those who make it, I mean the people, is just a vague ambition destined to fail. The Goma Web Activism Summit as well as other similar events on the continent are the pillars of a powerful democracy.
Internet Governance Forum Ambassador in Kenya
I believe this summit is a great platform to mentor the next generation of citizen journalists through the use of new media tools among the youth in Nord Kivu. Speaking at the Goma Web Activism Summit in 2014 inspired me to start a similar initiative in Kenya with the support of www.iafrikan.com
