Building a Technology-Friendly Society for Adolescents

February 22, 2023 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 am

Technology currently happens to be a fast-growing phenomenon in today’s society and has been of great impact on the present adolescent generation of our time, both positively and negatively. Access to technology that should be used to mold and be of positive influence to adolescents, such as; help in widening and improve adolescent’s knowledge and boost their educational life, most often than not, it’s been used in the wrong way, as they (adolescents) turns to experience bullying, harassment, and gender-based violence, because, he isn’t very strong laws to punish perpetrators of such acts; and sometimes, some of the perpetrators happens to be adolescents too from the opposite sex, thus making it quite unsafe for adolescent users.

This webinar aims to target both adolescents and young people from Cameroon, which we believe will be of a positive impact as it will be used to raise awareness and re-oriented their minds on how better to embrace technology and make the best out of it. We also believe that it will also be an opportunity for us to call on our government to not just adopt laws but they should implement strong laws, that will go a long way to ensure a safe online society for all adolescents and young people. 

The program will be done online via zoom and will run for 2 hours started from 7am EST / 2pm CAT. We hope to bring together approximately 50+ participants to participate in the webinar. The webinar will take a form of a panel session, with four panelists who will be talking on four thematic such as:

  • Addressing and responding to OGBV
  • Enforcing digital security for adolescent users 
  • Technology, a tool for an educational boost for adolescents
  • Young people as agents of digital hygiene 

Question and Answer Session: After the presentation of the four panelists, we intend to engage participants through the question and answer sessions by having them ask questions or give contributions to the topics that were presented.
