21st Century Hi-Tech Children and Youth Creating World Solidarity

Place

Location: Poznań, Poland
Date: 30 Aug 11:00 - 15:30

Description

Room 3.3

In this rapidly evolving digital age, technology and social media have become critical tools of communication and collaboration, allowing cyber citizens to form likeminded global communities irrespective of existing geopolitical barriers. With over 3 billion people using the internet, children and youth are one of the largest consumer groups embracing cyber technology and a variety of social media platforms. This panel seeks to understand the role of youth groups in successfully transcending barriers to form hi-tech global online communities that connect in solidarity over universal messages of peace, development, and harmony. Cyber-technology and social media have become highly efficient global communication infrastructure that allow knowledge to become more universal and accessible to all. This has, in turn, allowed youth to become drivers of social, economic and political change, as they share knowledge, awareness and opinions through online platforms, thereby creating the foundation for a more united world with their universal messages of solidarity. This panel will demonstrate how these youth driven transcendent online communities overcome challenges posed by international communities to form a unified planetary web-community and sense of belongingness that propagates messages of positive peace online. This allows youth to simultaneously challenge limited perceptions of global cultures and older generations, as they reduce physical geopolitical distances by positively harnessing technology to unite a fragmented world. This interdisciplinary panel will therefore use a largely Anthropological perspective to analyse this sense of belonging and community that youth harbor in order to create a sense of assimilation to bridge global cultures digitally.
