Facilitated by RNW Media | Digital Communities for Social Change

The Global Village

We are living in a digital era. A global village in which boundaries between online and offline spaces have become blurred. In some settings, offline possibilities are limited and young people look for alternative spaces, online, to find reliable information on topics of their importance. The task at hand is to create safe online spaces – inclusive virtual environments where youth can engange in conversations about what matters to them, form an indepent opinion and lead the process of positive change in society. How can we build digital communities that offer reliable information, foster voice-diversity, encourage participation, and are inviting to marginalized groups, while reducing the negative impact of such online adversities? 

Digital human rights

Online spaces have the potential to break down the boundaries of communication, unite diverse voices together and connect multiple viewpoints. But at times they can pose challenges to human rights. From online censorship, disinformation or bullying to internet shutdowns and content takedowns, every day the digital rights of young users are being challenged. So how can we build digital communities that offer reliable information, foster diverse voices, encourage participation, and are inviting to marginalized groups, while reducing the negative impact of such online adversities? And how can we keep up with the reality of a fast-changing online environment while constantly adapting our strategies to the needs and aspirations of young people?

Digital communities for social change

RNW Media has vast experience in building digital communities for social change. They take pride and confidence in years of working with their teams around the world to design innovative methods of building online accessible, safe and inclusive communities. It’s a process of continuous learning and improvement, to listen to the needs of global youth, respect the aspirations of young generations in all diversity, and adapt strategies to encourage participation and create optimum engagement.
