How hybrid change makers combine the old with the new.
In today's networked world, power dynamics are shifting. In activism, this had led to new hybrid forms of working. While activists still demand governments to grant people their rights, they mobilize people through online campaigns and inform people about their rights through music, documentaries and other art forms. It is hard to label these change makers, because they can speak to many different types of people. In this panel, George Gachara of the Nest in Nairobi and Felipe Altenfelder of Fora do Eixo will talk about the ways they are doing this and explore what this may mean for activism in the future.
