The Youth Dialogue on Internet Governance (YOUthDIG) is a yearly pre-event to the European Dialogue on Internet Governance (EuroDIG) aimed to foster active youth participation.
This year, both meetings were planned at the Abdus Salam International Center for Theoretical Physics in Trieste, Italy.
Due to the spread of COVID-19 no face-to-face YOUthDIG is possible. Instead we will conduct a webinar series with all selected participants. There will be thematic webinars on:
- The Internet Governance ecosystem
- Media and content with a focus on countering disinformation and safety online
- Online activism and decentralized human rights work
- Youth participation in Internet Governance (in cooperation with YCIG)
The webinars will be conducted throughout May.
This workflow culminates in the drafting of the youth messages on the weekend before EuroDIG. Participants shall be encouraged to actively participate in EuroDIG as well, and take the role of an online moderator.
