What do young people think about Internet governance, based on their experience of growing up with the Internet?
We have just started a new e-participation project, getting young people (mainly 16-21) to discuss Internet governance on-line and feeding their creative ideas to policy-makers in the UK, Ireland, Germany, Estonia and the EU. See www.huwy.eu
As UK Co-ordinator I am looking for 20 groups of young people, and several policy-makers to take part from January 2009. Contact me if you are interested.
And right now I am looking for a part-time research assistant, based in the Queen’s University Management School, Belfast.
This post is available for 22 months in the HuWY (Hub Websites for Youth Participation) project (www.huwy.eu), assisting in the planning and delivery of e-participation activities that will get hundreds of young people telling national and European policy-makers how to govern the Internet.
