Our projects align within one of the three categories:
Open Technology & Open Knowledge and & Peacebuilding
r0g_agency’s projects form the conceptual cornerstone of its work in applying the power and possibilities provided by open systems solutions in addressing the challenges posed by post-conflict transition and rapid societal transformation. These include establishing innovative strategies for open development, creating forums for dialogue, research and exchange, with an aim at realization and implementation of the projects with partner organizations, networks and civil society at large.
#defyhatenow is a grassroots community peacebuilding, training and conflict reconciliation project aiming to strengthen the voices and support the actions of peace & youth oriented civil society organisations.
It aims to raise awareness of and develop means to mitigate social media based hate speech, conflict rhetoric and online incitement to violence.
#defyhatenow seeks to support those voices acting against the conflict to go ‘viral’ within and outside the country – also bringing the Diaspora into the online peace building framework, bridging gaps of knowledge and awareness of social media mechanisms between those with access to technology and those without.
