Quarterly meet-ups for anyone interested in the tech/youth/support venn

Digital and social media are essential elements for organisations working with children and young people. But, how in this rapidly changing area, do we stay relevant? What is effective? How do we manage risks and safeguard participants? Whilst we embrace the opportunities of digital, how do we ensure true participation?

Join us for the seventh More Than Robots 'Digital Participation Meet-up' to explore these topics and connect with others.

The meet-up - very kindly hosted by Media Smart - is for anyone interested in the role of digital in youth participation, engagement and support.

This small, informal event is an opportunity to discuss real examples of what does/doesn’t work, meet colleagues working on similar challenges and share useful research, news or updates

The morning will include short case studies plus plenty of time for discussion and networking 

There will also be an 'open mic' session in which anyone can have a few minutes to share updates, pitch ideas or ask for help…

Outcomes: Through the meet-ups, we hope to strengthen links between organisations and professionals, highlight innovative practice and help others avoid common pitfalls so that, ultimately, all children and young people can be supported to share their views and opinions online safely, effectively and easily.

Places are limited and by invite only so please save yours now.
