Schwarzkopf-Stiftung | #GoingViral: How young Europeans can foster democratic values in the digital space
Die Schwarzkopf-Stiftung Junges Europa lädt ein zu einer Online Panel Diskussion, bei der es um das Thema gehen wird, was Aktivismus im Netz bedeutet und wie junge Menschen versuchen, online auf politische Entscheidungen Einfluss zu nehmen. Anbei die Einladung im Wortlaut:
„Discussing online youth activism, its challenges and opportunities, the panellists will question the assumption of the internet as a great equalizer, which enables digital (youth) participation in democracies around 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 Ekin Tanca, Farah Abdi, Elena Popescu, Davit Manukyan are fellows in the Digital Europe Programme (2021) by the Schwarzkopf Foundation Young Europe and Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft. The programme is implemented within the Educational Network Understanding Europe. 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 by 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 in written form during the talk.“
