Agenda The meeting took place over three days. During those days we worked with the participants on mapping out the key risks and threats in their respective countries, their needs as activists, WHRDs, journalists and lawyers. Beyond that we focused on what type of content, sessions and participants that should be a part of the Asian GTI.
Resources Tactical Tech's previous GTI curricula.
Feelings It was quite eye opening to see the commonalities in the risks and the threats across the region, even though the contexts maybe similar. The positive participation by the 12 experts has provided key feedback that will help shape the GTI.
