Join us, make your voice heard and be a part of the Global Citizens' Dialogue adventure!

organized by Asociatia GEYC - Group of the European Youth for Change

How many times have you heard people talking about Internet Governance, fake news, artificial intelligence and digital footprint? These are topics that are becoming more and more relevant, especially in the context of the COVID pandemic, which "forced" us to move our activities online. So why not make your voice heard and let us know what your views on the future of Internet are?
Join us for a 3-day summit taking place online between 8th-10th of October 2020, where you will have the chance to interact with professionals in the field, ask questions and contribute to the discussions, but also to take part in 4 workshops during which you will be the "star". Just remember, there are no right or wrong answers, there are just different opinions!

When and where?

The event will take place online; the first day will have an international attendance and will involve representatives of different Internet governance actors: – governments, intergovernmental organisations, the private sector, the technical community and civil society in a moderated discussion, with the participation of a wide audience.

The second and third days are dedicated to Romanian participants, who will be guided through the discussions by experienced facilitators. The ones who will take part in all the workshops will receive the e-certificate.

About the organizer

About the organizer

Back in 2010, GEYC started as one of the first digital youth work communities in Europe, now counting about 4000 members in Romania: young people, youth workers and teachers. Its aim is to generate a change by taking full advantage of the new technologies, exploring new cultures and actively turning their ideas into actions. In the past 10 years, we worked together with more than 100 high schools in Romania, over 200 youth organizations in Europe and over 10000 Romanian young people. Our vision is to bring together formal and nonformal education in order to complement each other and contribute to the full development of youth potential.
