Internet Citizens Workshop in partnership with Google Digital Garage and UK Youth

Internet Citizens Workshop | Friday 24th November | 10am - 4pm | The Vibe, 100 Holder Road, South Yardley, B25 8AS | Free

Internet Citizens roadshow is a series of interactive workshops for 13 - 18 year olds across the UK. The workshop will help young people become more confident, critical consumers of information online and feel empowered to use social media to communicate their views and ideas in a positive way.

The workshops are designed to:

  • Educate young people with critical thinking skills to safeguard themselves online
  • Demonstrate the power of the Internet to bring people together
  • Empower them to find and share their voice in the online world in a positive way

And participants will become more considered and independent online actors who are:

  • More critical consumers of information
  • More capable self-safeguarders from content that may be negative or problematic
  • More resilient to negative narratives that can make them feel at risk
  • More confident in their use of social media to communicate their own individual positive messages

The topics that we cover in a fun and interactive way are:

  • Free Speech vs Hate Speech
  • Echo Chambers and Filter Bubbles
  • Us vs Them
  • Emotional Manipulation

An amazing lunch and refreshments will be provided throughout the day and a goodie bag at the end. YouTuber, Nadir, will be attending all of our workshops to talk about his experience as well as put together a creative vlog of all the workshops that are being delivered.
