Explore diplomacy in the digital age at UN Youth’s Digital Diplomacy Summit!

Held on February 28th, the Digital Diplomacy Summit will see students from across Victoria come together to discuss how 21st-century technology shapes our world.

Join us to explore the birth of diplomacy and how it has developed in a digital era. You 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.

Together, we 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.
