24h Thinkathon – Our digital future c’est ici.
Are you driven by the digital world’s advancements and wish to produce recommendations in regards to an inclusive digital future? This is your platform. We’ll make sure your voice is heard in Europe and Canada.
Funded by the EU-Commission, this unique project gives you the opportunity to connect with Youth of Ca/EU and change the regulations surrounding an inclusive digital world. Led by the Goethe Institute in collaboration with CJE and Think Young, this initiative is meant to address preselected topics and bind bridges between governments to secure an inclusive future online. This challenge is open to youth aged 18-29 from CA or EU.
In cooperation with our partners we will develop a series of hybrid on-line/offline events that will enable direct interactions between young Canadians and Europeans (and other stakeholders) and support them in the development of policy recommendations on the key parameters required to ensure that our digital future is inclusive.
We will disseminate these recommendations to policy-makers but more importantly, will communicate to the media about the issues that young people addressed, their thinking and the conclusions they reached.
Our hope and our belief is that this broader public discussion will help both Canadian and European policymakers
to develop policies for an inclusive digital future – and that they will see the interest and wisdom of a bilateral process which will ensure that the policies they develop are compatible with each other.
Our responsibilities in this project are primarily:
- Participant recruitment regarding the events in Canada and the online platform
- organization of the 6 events that take place in Canada (finding suitable venues, partnering up with Canadian federal and provincial policy-makers,…)
- Foster people-to-people contacts and exchange of views between young Canadians and Europeans on the key parameters required to ensure that our digital future is inclusive;
- Enable young adults from Canada and Europe (18-30 years) to jointly contribute to policy-making on an inclusive digital future.
