New Media Summer School 2016

The training activity took place
in Brussels, Belgium
organised by EuroDIG Secretariat

Aims & objectives

The New Media Summer School prepares young people to take part in the European Dialogue on Internet Governance Conference. The NMSS introduces the current debates in internet policy and activates young peoples activism to speak their minds in the Internet Governance Fora and engage online.

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

The NMSS brought together 25 participants from all over Europe. The trainer team consisted of 2 youth delegates from the European Youth Delegate project I run and myself as lead trainer.

Training methods used & main activities

The training was structured in agenda setting, policy debate with experts and activism. During agenda setting we established the prevalent knowledge in the group through icebreakers, brainstorming and small group discussions. The expert discussions have been set up in an interview format between the delegates and the speakers to create a more dynamic setting. During the activism we used open space methodology to allow flexible working groups and settings.

Outcomes of the activity

The training produced messages from the group, as well as some actions during the programme. The outputs have been documented in the official EuroDIG booklet:
