This year’s edition of the New Media Summer School tied closely into the European Youth IGF project. It was in fact hosted by 3 of our youth delegates, who ran and prepared the sessions to forward their knowledge gained so far. Bringing together 25 engaged young people and giving them the chance to contribute to the debates.
Auke, Sonia and David involved speakers from the different stakeholder groups to give the participants a chance to already test the waters and familiarize themselves with the rhetorics they would face the upcoming days. We had chats with Christina Monti from the European Commission and Dr. Tatiana Tropina, researcher on Cyber Security.
With almost a full day of planning actions to get involved at EuroDIG, the participants gained quite some visibility with their action against geo-blocking for internet traffic.
Not to forget the messages of the event:
