10 Young People Talk About Social Media

6:00 PM - 7:30 PM (AUS Eastern Standard Time)

Thursday 28th October, 2021

Online

EVENT TIME - PLEASE NOTE, whilst the time is currently showing as Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST), this will convert to Australian Eastern Daylight Time (AEDT) in October. The time of the event will remain 6PM on 28 October AEDT. Please check your local time against Australian Eastern Daylight Time.


Young people are majority users of social media, video games, online and offline apps, and the digital world more broadly. They live and breathe technology: from the moment they wake up to the moment they fall asleep – to learn, to communicate, to socialise and connect, and to simply navigate and make sense of the world we live in.  

Yet we find that their voices are missing from conversations and decision-making on how the digital environment impacts their safety, health and wellbeing, and how it should be regulated. 

Child Wise in partnership with House of Muchness, a centre for creativity for young people, is thrilled to be hosting the screening of the short film ‘Like This’, a unique documentary featuring young people as they reflect on their relationship with the digital world.  

Join us and hear from an exceptional group of young people and their thoughts on risks, fears, privacy, relationships, and their lived experiences of empowerment and participation through technology. 

The film screening will be followed by a Q&A with the young participants in the film to give you an opportunity to ask them questions firsthand.

  • Anyone who leads organisations that engage with children and young people either directly or incidentally

  • Parents/carers
