PROGRAM DESCRIPTION Objective: The objective of this TechCamp “A Generation of Advocates - Developing Issues-based Campaigns” is to give young leaders and civil society organizations from the ten ASEAN countries the tools to be engaged as advocates and to make an impact in the areas of transnational crime and security. Content: The workshop will focus on the issues of transnational crime (with focus on human & wildlife trafficking and emerging humanitarian crises) and security (with focus on countering violent extremism). During the workshop, participants will advance their digital literacy and communication skills and gain the technical/digital tools necessary to advance their advocacy on the core issues. The specific program of the workshop will be determined in collaboration with U.S. State Department's Bureau of International Information Programs (IIP) and USASEAN, and based on a pre-event participant survey that IIP will conduct. After the workshop, participants will implement 6-month follow-on projects. These follow on projects will be designed by the participants during the workshop. Possibilities include: create campaigns/online movements to organize their communities and advocate for change; train others in their communities and spread the knowledge they have gained; lead workshops in their own countries; conduct webinars or online courses; build mobile apps; connect effectively with the YSEALI network of over 100,000 members, etc. Participants: 40 emerging young leaders and/or civil society members who are currently engaged on issues of transnational crime (preferably in but not limited to: human trafficking, wildlife trafficking, emerging humanitarian crises) or security (preferably in but not limited to: countering violent extremism) in their communities. All participants must be YSEALI members aged 20-35, proficient in written and spoken English, and citizens of ASEAN (Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.) Timeline: The two-day TechCamp will be held in the week of August 21, 2017. Follow-on activities will last for 6 months after the workshop.
