A Tale of Two Cities to be Featured at the Ottawa Peace Festival
Join us on 30 September 2016 at Ottawa’s Peace Festival as we share our experience with PeaceTech and the Syrian conflict.
A Tale of Two Cities will be featured as part of a panel on PeaceTech and the Syrian Conflict: What Canadians Are Doing.
The special panel event will also feature our work on SalamaTech.
The conflict in Syria has been fought on, and through, the internet. Since 2012, SalamaTech has helped hundreds of thousands of Syrian civilians to stay safe online. Run by Canadians, SalamaTech is the only digital safety programme that delivers emergency assistance and on-the-ground protection to Syrians trapped by the conflict. We have seen how digital safety saves lives in Syria. Our Be Heard training helps authentic Syrian Voices of Resilience to make their voices heard on social media — to cut through the noise of conflict and send their messages to the world.
