There was, perhaps, not a single NGO in Russia that was not aware of new regulations for submission of the 2018 report to the Ministry of Justice. What surprises had prepared the Ministry of Justice, and would they come before the deadline for report submission? All this and other important details were discussed at the webinar “Russian legislation on NGOs put simply”. In addition, Daria Miloslavsaya also talked about the latest legislative changes in force regarding the activities of non-profit organisations, as well as ambitious plans on fundamental change in legislation.

SUSTAINABLE SOLUTIONS AND DATA EMPOWERMENT IN THE DIGITAL SOCIETY

Personal data is used across sectors and international borders to generate value and provide better services. This is mainly done based on big organisations’ agendas, without individuals’ full knowledge or control. On 25 May 2018, the EU GDPR came into effect, with data subjects rights to access, port, rectify, and delete their data. From organisations’ point of view, the new regulation also created a lot of confusion and fear, leaving many of them wondering what to do, in order to avoid the negative consequences of non-compliance. While those worries seem understandable, the discussions around GDPR need to develop from sole focus on legal compliance to fostering of ethical use of data.

This webinar shared some of the burning issues we face today in a digital society, while daring to dream and suggest a fairer, more sustainable and prosperous solution. Civil society organisations have a big role in turning the current paradigm towards a human-centric vision of personal data, as we need to move from data protection to data empowerment.

SPEAKER:
Maria Lukyanova | Information agency “Republic of Karelia”

The webinar was a step-by-step algorithm aiming at addressing information tasks for social and non-profit organisations. We discussed how to define priorities in the media sector so that daily routines and reporting do not “eat up” the key message.

We explored how to define key areas of informational work, how to search for topics and themes and how to effectively cover them.

With tangible examples, we learned how to invent, produce, describe and implement projects that catch the attention of the customer, the audience, and the media. By the end of the webinar, each listener had developed an idea for his project and was able to implement it the next day.
