Dear All,

Public Knowledge is happy to announce that the second round of our Open
Internet Course <http://open-internet-p2pcourse.org/> is set to launch on June
27, 2016. You can check out our description page here
<https://www.publicknowledge.org/open-internet-course>. Last summer, our
course hosted 30 participants, including advocates, judges, and journalists
from various countries throughout Latin America. The second round will
include new resources and updated training materials, including a new
module on spectrum management, featuring original videos with spectrum
experts, as well as an updated cybersecurity module with the latest on U.S.
cybersecurity policies and practices.

The call for applications is now open and we will continue to accept
applications for participants until June 10. *Those of you who are
interested are encouraged to apply as soon as possible! *Please help us

The final online version of the course is currently only available in
Spanish and requires approximately 5-7 hours per week/module. Participants
can take longer if they wish to go deeper, since every module has
additional suggested readings and assignments.

The course is targeted towards new activists, advocates, young
professionals, young policy makers, and others who are interested in
learning the basics of topics related to the intersection of advocacy and
internet-related issues. Topics to be covered in the course include, among
others, strategic planning, campaigning, internet governance, human rights
online, and net neutrality.

The primary goal of the course is to help train a new generation of
advocates to work on creating and maintaining an Open Internet for all.
