From 25 to 27 September 2024 in Umbria region in Italy
GenderED Coalition will host the 

Civic Hackathon for feminist online communities!

Civic Hackathon for feminist online communities!

MIL educators will be given the opportunity to design and create artistic media products or social media campaigns with the support of artists, video makers, photographers, etc.


Our international creative teams will gather in a Civic Hackathon and activate strategies in the solution of social challenges at community level, by developing creative media products, creative tools or campaigns. 


The challenges will cover the following areas of gender-based discrimination and violence as result of gendered disinformation:

  • monitoring gendered disinformation on social media platforms → acquiring data to better know the problem and its impact on women and girls;

  • challenging gendered disinformation on social media platforms → new patriarchy-free narrative;

  • cancel the impact of misleading and offensive visual and textual representation of women and girls online → support/prevention actions for victims and potential victims.
