SMEX creates lots of original training content in English and Arabic. We also like to save time and energy by borrowing from, adapting, and sometimes translating materials from friends and partners in the world of social media for social change. Below you’ll find links and other resources from workshops we’ve hosted and elsewhere on the Web.
