Digital literacy has never been more crucial. Research shows that young people spend more than 44 hours per week in front of screens and an average of 32 hours per week on social media.
Freedom Foundation has teamed up with UK Youth to deliver Be Internet Citizens across the East Midlands.
Be Internet Citizens has been designed to teach teenagers about media literacy, critical thinking and digital citizenship, with the aim of encouraging young people to have a positive voice online. The programme provides a strong foundation, empowering them with the confidence to become producers of online content, where they can express their identities, share their stories, make a social impact, and bring communities together.
