NERDY Training

The training activity took place
in Vienna
organised by Young Greens Austria
26th April - 2nd May 2013

Aims & objectives

The training was a capacity building for youth organisations on the topic of Internet Governance. We put a focus on the topics of privacy in its different forms and towards different stakeholders. It was also a starting point to promote forward the better inclusion of young people in the multi-stakeholder dialogue processes of Internet Governance.

Target group & international/intercultural composition of the group & team

The group was brought together from the different supporting organisations (AEGEE, FYEG, JEF, YEU).

Training methods used & main activities

We chose a rather playful approach to Internet Governance, mixing games, simulations and discussions. We adapted the line debate, to put people into a more conference style way of argument, we created our own memes and had an open mic session with motivational videos.

Outcomes of the activity

The activity prepared the participants to take a stand in the online environment and to take part in the Internet Governance multi-stakeholder debates. We created videos that were introduced at the EuroDIG conference, which you can find here:

Your tasks and responsibilities within the team

I was one of two trainers in a rather big team. My responsibility was to set up methodology and coordinate the different speaking roles and facilitate the exercises.

I worked on this training for 7 days as a full time trainer.
