Surfing the web can be risky: corporations and governments are tracking what you do online. But, using Tor you can avoid censorship and online surveillance. In this activity, you will learn what the Tor network is, what’s the onion routing and how it’s different from a VPN, how to install Tor browser and other digital secure tools. If you already use Tor, we’re excited to learn about your experience using it, teaching and talking about Tor.
In this workshop you will also learn about the Global South Initiative and how you can collaborate with Tor Project.
