Online event: #GoingViral – How young Europeans can foster democratic values in the digital space

On 23.11.2021, our Digital Europe Fellows, together with Ajša Hadžibegović and Damian Boeselager (MEP), will be discussing online youth activism and will question the assumption of the internet as a great equalizer. Register now online & via email.

Discussing online youth activism, its challenges and opportunities, the panellists will analyse if and how the Internet enables digital (youth) participation in Europe: What does online youth activism mean? How accessible is digital youth activism? How can digital youth activism be more visible and influential for political decision-making?

Kansu, Farah, Elena and Davit are fellows in our Digital Europe Programme. Focusing on topics related to the digital space and digital youth participation, the Fellows identified during the last six months several challenges and developed workshops addressing those – supported by experts like Ajša Hadžibegović. They now present their workshops which can be used for peer-to-peer trainings in the Understanding Europe network and beyond in schools around Europe. Together with Damian Boeselager, they will be discussing how young Europeans can use the digital space to shape social change through online activism.

We look forward to your participation. Please register online or via e-mail by November 22, 2021. You will receive the access data on the day of the event. The online talk will take place via Zoom. The prerequisite is internet access, preferably via PC, tablet, or smartphone. Participation via telephone is possible with limited use. Questions can be asked during the talk.
