The Activist Handbook was created by six activists (Sean Curry, Niks Derums, Joppe Hoekstra, Marijn Prins, Elizabete Vegnere and Daniel Whooley) from various countries in Europe during the FYEG Summercamp Hackathon 2019 in Serbia. We wanted to create a guidebook for fellow activists that would empower them to fight for change.
Currently, we are growing our team of volunteers and developing our platform further. Would you like to contribute by writing articles, making videos, translating or something else? Find out how to join.
