    In an ever-changing digital world, technology has become a powerful tool to mobilise change and drive global progress, particularly among youth who are often considered digital natives. But with the uncertainty and restrictions of COVID-19, how can we ensure that we engage youth in a sustainable way in the post-pandemic era? We look forward to hearing your thoughts on how we can use technology to engage youth to achieve global action and the Sustainable Development Goals!

    Our chat will be moderated by Youth Digital Engagement Expert, Dr Alicja Pawluczuk, UNU Macau’s Young ICTD Fellow. This is a great opportunity to connect with individuals and organizations around the world interested in the topic of youth digital engagement.
