Digital Rights Work & Self-care

We dedicated this Glitter Meetup to discuss ideas of how we can better work/network on Digital Rights with each other virtually, considering we may be in quarantine for a while. Especially build cooperations and keeping self-care as a priority.

How to improve our work/network

  • To have more meetups focused on self-care/mental health
  • To have meetups focused on self-care with a trans-regional perspective
  • To have more places to get to know the space
  • To better align our work and cooperate to promote IFF community projects. These could be sustained through time, building upon projects/interests that each is working on, and adjusting responsibilities and time to various needs

When everyone says self-care what are you envisioning

  • Self care to me it's also time management, and self esteem conversations
  • I imagine a simple check in like this, but where the provoking questions are about how you are feeling at that moment or like something nice you did for yourself that week
  • outdoors and exercising more

Formats and Activities for Self-care

  • Guided Meditations
  • Practical Workshops
  • Video calls, phone calls, text based
  • An informal call discussing how i'm feeling, while i'm walking
  • Watch a movie together and people join a chat room
