UNESCO: Youth and the Internet

On 16 and 17 June 2015, UNESCO brought together government officials, academics, policy-makers, youth NGOs representatives, experts and practitioners from a range of institutions and disciplines for its first-ever international conference, Youth and the Internet: Fighting Radicalization and Extremism.

I attended the 2-day session with my mentor and colleague, Janice Richardson, senior advisor at European Schoolnet.

We discussed policy interventions and processes for reducing the use of the Internet as a tool for youth extremism and radicalization, as well as the ways ahead for the engagement of young people for a culture of tolerance and peace.
