Tactical Tech is an international NGO that engages with citizens and civil-society organisations to explore and mitigate the impacts of technology on society. Its techniques are informed by its cross-disciplinary expertise in political engagement and technology. Its methodology uses an iterative, design-based way of thinking, creating a continuous loop between ideas, testing and development. Its aim is to make the issues accessible – at times fun and at times challenging – but most importantly, to create interventions that make these issues relevant and accessible to their audiences.
Safa Ghnaim leads Tactical Tech’s successful Data Detox Kit project, building partnerships and leading workshops around the world. The Data Detox Kit’s friendly, non-technical tone and flexible approach gives people the space to choose their own Data Detox journey through controlling their data privacy and digital security, enhancing their digital wellbeing, and spotting misinformation. Before joining Tactical Tech, she worked as an educator and editor, most notably editing and formatting the book Tatreez & Tea: Embroidery and Storytelling in the Palestinian Diaspora, which told the story of her family.
