Session teaser

The second YOUthDIG 2023 webinar will be divided into two sessions: European Tech/Cyber Diplomacy and Group presentation preparations. The first session will be led by Christina Steinbrecher-Pfandt, an international art curator and CEO of the network, who will introduce attendees to the concept of European Tech Diplomacy. In today's interconnected world, tech diplomacy has gained immense importance, and this session will delve into how technology can be leveraged to achieve diplomatic objectives and foster stronger international relationships.

This is followed by a session on Cyber Diplomacy led by Pavlina Pavlova, a public policy advisor at CyberPeace Institute. The session will focus on the UN processes and global challenges such as cyberattacks, cybercrime, and accountability in cyberspace and how the EU diplomatic and policy efforts respond and shape them.

The third part of the webinar will give space for hands-on work in small groups, where participants will be able to collaborate and get to know each other better. This provides a unique opportunity for individuals to exchange ideas, engage in discussion and find common interests. By the end of the session, each group will need to come up with a presentation topic and relevant subtopics. Further instructions will be provided through e-mail.
