#EuroDIG: Insafe Youth ambassadors join the European Dialogue on Internet Governance


Insafe Youth ambassadors, Kathrin and Florian, attended the European Dialogue on Internet Governance (EuroDIG) which took place on 4-5 June 2015 in Sofia, Bulgaria.

Insafe Youth ambassadors, Kathrin and Florian, attended the European Dialogue on Internet Governance (EuroDIG) which took place on 4-5 June 2015 in Sofia, Bulgaria. 

Kathrin participated also in the New Media Summer School (#nmss15), an event preceding EuroDIG, which aims to prepare young people to get involved in the discussions on internet governance. At the same time, Florian was part of a panel on Youth Empowerment that considered the notion of empowerment from different points of view and tried to find the connection between them. Here is what Kathrin and Floarian shared with us from these events:

Kathrin: "The panel in the session about 'Media in the Digital Age' included only experts and, while I really appreciate their expertise, my problem was that no young person was on the panel to represent the youth voice. So I decided to start tweeting about it, which was a successful way to get attention as there were three huge Twitter walls in the plenary room. Attention shifted to young people in the room and so we got the chance to share our opinions as well."

Florian: "Youth Empowerment is not an easy and simple topic. Nevertheless, I was really excited and happy to talk about my views on how to empower youth. During the Youth Empowerment session, I drew upon the Youth Manifesto, an initiative driven by youth to select 10 principles that encompass the views of young Europeans on how to make a better internet, to show that empowering youth will often lead to a great outcome. “

Kathrin: “EuroDIG was not only about sessions, it was about including everyone and having meaningful discussions. It was about multistakeholderism and how to ensure that all participants are part of the debate, independent of their background."
