College – John Mathai Centre
City/State – Thrissur, Calicut, Kerala
No of students – 95

Right at the epicentre of Thrissur is Vadakkumnathan temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva. We were to visit the University of Calicut for our first set of workshops in Kerala. Dr Shyjan Davis, professor of Economics at the university said that it was important for students across Kerala to know the necessity of taking safety precautions on the various social media platforms. He was keen to host this workshop for his students because he wanted them to know that when sharing information on social media, one must be extremely careful of who its being shared with. In addition to that one mustn’t befriend everyone on facebook since the crime and bullying related to fake id’s is rampant.
