INTERNET CITIZENS: FUSION TEAMS UP WITH YOU TUBE TO MAKE THE WEB A BETTER PLACE

Google and YouTube want a safe and exciting web where young people can be creative, express themselves and belong. So, back in August 2017, I was invited to attend a meeting to discuss how I could get involved as spokesperson and facilitator. Fast forward to summer 2018 and I’m looking back on an incredible journey that has taken me across the whole UK, engaging amazing young people in schools, youth centres and everywhere in between.

The programme, Be Internet Citizens, has been designed to teach teenagers about media literacy, critical thinking and digital citizenship, with the aim of encouraging young people to have a positive voice online. The programme provides a strong foundation, empowering them with the confidence to become producers of online content, where they can express their identities, share their stories, make a social impact, and bring communities together.
