Youth are often considered “digital natives”. However, the truth is that being born after 2000 does not mean you come pre-installed with digital literacy and good technological instincts. The challenges and opportunities that today’s youth face navigating the digital world are uniquely their own, and so it is critical that youth have opportunities to name what they need.
With this information as our foundation, we have been taking action to ensure youth have the knowledge and tools they need to thrive and build a better digital future. Over the Spring of 2019 we conducted a needs assessment regarding digital justice, digital rights, and digital citizenship, and the results are ready to share!
This project was supported by the Digital Rights Community Grant Program a partnership between Digital Justice Lab, Tech Reset Canada and the Centre for Digital Rights.
