WHAT IS DYS?
The Digital Youth Summit (DYS) is one of the main events of Mano Amiga in partnership with Facebook. This program aims to train organizations and individuals around the Philippines on efficient and effective ways they can utilize social media to promote social good.
The Digital Youth Summit is an action-oriented conference that provides peer-to-peer mentoring to promising youth members, and empowers them to be ambassadors and leaders of responsible digital citizenship.
During its pilot year, the summit, with its theme #ThinkBeforeYouShare, tackled online safety issues, putting more emphasis on solutions and how Filipinos have maximized social media, particularly Facebook, to make a meaningful difference in society. This year the Digital Youth Summit will address not only online safety issues but also put emphasis on Authenticity, Safety and Wellbeing, Community Engagement, Positive Behavior, and Digital Literacy. With the theme #iamDigital, we prompt participants to cascade their campaigns with the insightful learning’s they may get during the summit.
