OK, so I forgot to actually post details of this event before. Sorry about that. This Saturday 27th September, the first ever UK Youth Online event will be held at the DUIS offices in London. You only have until 6pm this evening to register, so that’s just under 3 hours! More about the event:
The UK Youth Online unconference is a free co-created event for anyone with an interest in how technology impacts upon, or can be used in, work with under 18s. The event will be based around four themes:
- Online safety and opportunity – keeping young people safe online, and balancing safety with opportunity.
- Youth participation online – getting young people involved in decision making through online tools and environments.
- Promoting services and messages to young people – online marketing and communication with young people.
- Projects: youth work 2.0 – looking at projects and approaches to work with young people that make use of online technologies.
Although I’m not sure what I can bring to the event, I’m excited about the discussions and connections that could be made. If you’re free on Saturday and have an interest in these topics, sign up here ASAP! I’ll see you there.
