This inaugural village offers sessions that share knowledge and perspectives from mental healthcare practitioners and other experts, with a focus on helping us better understand how to achieve healthy and sustainable work environments in our communities and spaces. The Village was designed based on the findings of our 2020 Community Health Report, looking at the health and wellbeing of digital rights defenders around the world.

Sessions are scheduled for the entire month of November 2021. They offer different modalities of healing and are presented in different formats, times, and dates - some sessions are educational while others are hands-on workshops. We encourage you to attend as many as you can, to better understand the scope of healing pathways available.

How to RSVP You must RSVP for each session individually, noting that some sessions have a limit of participants. More sessions may be added to this program. Note, sessions will take place on either Zoom or BigBlueButton.
