DigitalBeez attended Youth Participation in Internet Governance Seminar // Council of Europe #Strasbourg

October 27, 2017

At the end of October, Digital Beez travelled to Strasbourg to participate in the Seminar on Youth Participation in Internet Governance. The event took place at the Youth Department and the Council of Europe .

 

 

 

The  aim of the seminar was to explore how youth participation in Internet Governance can be ensured in a meaningful and inclusive manner and will formulate recommendations for future action to be taken by the Youth Department and the Council of Europe to support youth participation. The aim of the event was to: 

  1. To map together with the participants the Internet Governance process and stakeholders, and the position of young people within it

  2. To develop a shared understanding of youth participation in Internet governance and analyse the achievements and pitfall of current youth participation in these processes

  3. To further explore what are the rights, the means, the spaces, the opportunities and the support required by young people in order to meaningfully participate in the shaping of the Internet

  4. To review the objectives for youth participation in Internet Governance and identify the role and contribution of youth organisations and other stakeholders towards these.

 

The event was packed with exciting and informative activities. We had a unique expertise to meet digital youth experts from all over Europe and beyond. Sharing expertise and good practice with organisations from countries such as  Albania, Italy, France or Ireland, helped us to understand the importance and complexity of  notion of internet governance.

 

We will be sharing the outcomes of the seminar with our colleagues in Scotland during the Digital Youth Work meeting this month.
