Defyhatenow Technical Peace-Builder (Tech4Peace) Fellowship 2024

Deadline: 5th of June, 2024

The Defyhatenow Technical Peace-Builder (Tech4Peace) Fellowship for 2024 is now accepting applications. The goal of the #defyhatenow campaign is to mobilize digital and civic action in opposition to hate speech and violent extremism, both online and off. The project employs the #Tech4Peace initiatives as a problem-solving tool in conflict-affected areas in an attempt to give data-based answers.

#defyhatenow believes that training students in using technology to build peace is a great way of bringing communities together since the internet has made the world a global village. As technical peacebuilders, fellows will be introduced and taught how to change narratives in a community through communication and information sharing, digital storytelling, and online education and training. This will allow technical students and professionals to support community action programs in conflict zones and enhance their involvement efforts.


The #Tech4Peace fellowship aims to build a network of technical peace builders by enabling recently graduated university students and young technical experts to engage with #defyhatenow communities through technical community outreach opportunities in design, tech development, AI and digital content creation, and hardware.
