Bye, bye boomer. You(th) taking over digitized democratic decision-making processes
Topic: Open data and eDemocracy
To map the barriers to youth participation in terms of concrete skills and capacities of young people - with a special focus on digitalisation and inclusiveness.
To create a better understanding of fields of action in increasingly digitized democratic processes and to raise awareness of threats of personal freedom in the digital space.
To create a space for the exchange of experiences in the field of digital activism with a focus on digital human rights protection and the deliberation about a joint vision of the role of youth leaders in this field; and to provide an environment where best practices, as well as struggles and failures, can be shared.
To provide participants with the opportunity to reflect (in a structured way) on their own aspirations as political figures in their respective societies and to sketch their very own “Personal Development Strategy.”
To offer target seminars that tackle various manifestations of digitization in democracies, ranging from classical media to the necessities of education in this field and the importance of data
To develop a sustainable notion of “future political activism”—which will challenge the orthodox understanding of political engagement and display the different layers of youth leadership. These findings will be concluded in a digital advocacy campaign for digital rights with a strong focus on youth.
No participation fee for participants from Estonia.
