Register for the event: Mozilla Sprint in Ghana
The Global Repository for Internet studies in partnership with the Internet Society Ghana Chapter,will join other global leaders in organizing a Mozilla Sprint for Internet Health #SprintforIH in Accra Ghana. It will be a fun and collaborative six (6) hour program where a diverse network of educators, engineers, artists, scientists, and many others come together in person and online to contribute to projects for a healthy Internet.
As part of a global movement to make the Internet better, safer, and healthier, educators are creating games that explore online privacy and digital citizenship. Scientists are sharing data online to speed the discovery of new medical treatments. Coders are building smartphone apps to prevent gender-based violence and more. Such will be happening in the open at the sprint event— where we will bring in topic experts to deliberate on trending IT issues that relate to the health of the internet. At the Global Sprint, we invite persons no matter their skill level or background. An attendant should be willing to contribute content wise in building the Global Repository for Internet Studies website (www.grisglobal.org) and participate in the other activities we have lined up.
