Active Citizenship for a Digital World
Monday 8 July, 1-3pm.
Attendees will have the opportunity to understand how so much civic engagement today takes place using digital media, and to recognise how digital has changed the nature of civic participation.
We will look at things such as voting rights, e-petitioning and the impact of social media on political engagement and shaping our world views.
The session will encourage critical thinking, and will also serve as a taster session for those who wish to join a more thorough programme on digital citizenship.
