Join us on April 24th for UN Youth’s Digital Diplomacy Summit!
Held in the city of Sydney (at a specific location yet to be determined), the Digital Diplomacy Summit will see students from across New South Wales come together to discuss how the 21st century and technology actively shapes our world.
Delegates (High-school students!) will explore the birth of diplomacy and how it has developed in a digital era. Delegates will get an opportunity to investigate how Digital Diplomacy is being used to advance international affairs and explore how governments are using the digital space to engage in cyber warfare. We will discuss the effects of using social media and digital platforms in everyday political discourse, and how misinformation campaigns and cyberattacks on physical infrastructure can disrupt everyday lives.
Delegates will further reflect on the role of the government in protecting their citizens from cyberattacks; including investigating International Law and what they think are acceptable regulations for Digital Diplomacy.
Please note: this event will be subject to the COVID-19 situation and regulations at the time of its expected run, and may not occur.
