UN launches youth media expression campaign to support Roadmap for Digital Cooperation

In response to the UN Secretary General’s Roadmap for Digital Cooperation and its call to connect, respect, and protect people in the digital age; the UN launched a call for young people to contribute to shaping global digital co-operation by sharing their reality with regards to relying on digital technology, their hopes for world leaders, and their demand for global digital co-operation to ensure no one is left behind, including young people. The call, which is open between 10-31 August 2020, invites young people to share a 90 second video under one of the three themes: (a) Connect, addressing the urgency to achieve universal connectivity, (b) Respect, upholding human rights in the digital age, (c) Protect, combat cyber-attacks and online harms, including child online risks. A selected number of videos and answers will be reviewed and featured during the UN High-Level Week in September 2020, including at key high-level events.
