Activity Highlights


Virtual Workshop: a series of virtual workshop sessions during February to April 2024 to deep dive into the complex problem of disinformation, hate speech and the impact on society. Participants will be equipped with knowledge and communication techniques to address disinformation and a broad framework on effective campaigns that can drive change. Participants then will hone in on which aspects of this complex challenge they want to tackle and begin to connect with others with similar passions.

Regional Workshop: an interactive 3-day workshop in Bangkok will provide participants with an intensive learning journey, combining insights and interactions from leading experts and local organizations, and guiding participants through the process of designing their campaign or project. Following the workshop, participants will have expanded their understanding of the issue, deepened their connections with YSEALI members and organizations tackling disinformation, and developed a solid concept of their national campaign/project.

Small Grants: Small grants will be available for selected YSEALI teams who successfully pitch their project after the in-person workshop. Each successful grant team will be provided mentoring on implementation of seed grants through clinic sessions with a YSEALI Alumni or thematic expert.
