Tech solutions. Human rights challenges. There seems to be a bottomless well of both and yet successful examples the former addressing the latter are comparatively sparse - especially in developing nations like the Philippines that need these solutions the most.
The Digibak Bootcamp gamifies the real-world challenges and processes faced by both human rights defenders and tech developers. Experts will be on hand, not to conduct lectures, but rather, to describe the playing field, explain the rules and demonstrate the tools (and maybe a cheat code or two!) to the participants - or in this case - players.
The majority of the session will be spent in the playing field, alongside, with or against other players who are stakeholders in the human rights and technology sectors, facing wild cards, roadblocks, power-ups and more. Whether players win or lose, the gamification of the work that they do may provide a new angle to solve an old problem, spark collaborations, inspire strategic thinking, increase understanding, and be just plain fun!
