Host a Twitter Teach-In

What is a Twitter Teach-in?                                                               

 16DAYS teachin

Teach-ins are a series of several, continuous tweets from a single source focused on a specific topic, such as an issue related to GBV in education.

Linked together with a unique hashtag, teach-ins are essentially tweetable lectures that are meant to
educate a wide, general audience.

How Can I Participate?

We invite 2017 16 Days Campaign activists to choose a date during the 16 Days Campaign (November 25th – December 10th) to conduct a Twitter Teach-in about a GBV-related issue that is of importance and relevance to your own contexts. Twitter using the hashtags #16days #GBVteachin!

The online community will also be able to contribute by tweeting its own teach-ins, questions, and short responses by using the hashtags #16days and #GBVteachin. The 16 Days Campaign will then highlight all participants’ work by re-tweeting their teach-ins. Find examples of tweets from last year’s Twitter Teach-In here.

Blog Parade

What is a Blog Parade?

Blog parades are a series of blog posts that revolve around a single topic or issue. The goal of a blog parade is to educate a general audience while bringing awareness to and engaging the global community in the selected topic.

Share your Blog!

CWGL will post the series 16 Blogs for 16 Days highlighting the work of activists from around the world throughout the campaign. We invite activists, NGOs, and the greater online community to write about issues concerning unequal access to a safe education and GBV. Write about your experience with these subjects or about what your organization is doing to eliminate them. Once your post is published on your blog, please send us an email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) and we will share and feature your posts throughout the campaign. If you don't have a blog, that's ok! You can email us your short articles and we will feature them on our site.
