Advancing at educating for cyber-hygiene (call for participants)

HREYN is looking for youth workers, trainers, and activists interested in joining the 2021 Study Session “Netizens - education for digital rights and democracy” which will be held at the European Youth Center in Strasbourg (EYCS) form 6th until 11th of December 2021.

The aim of this study session is to upgrade the know-how of human rights educators at using safe digital tools with young people and at the same time use non-formal education for cyber-hygiene of young people.

„Cyber hygiene refers to the cognitive competencies on how the internet and social media affects the individuals, communities and society as a whole, and practical skills to prevent and mitigate risks and use the internet for good.“ - HREYN Glossary


  • To develop human rights educators’ understanding about the internet and contemporary tensions and challenges, and its links to human rights and democracy;

  • To share practices and create non-formal education-based solutions for youth work and human rights education in the field of cyber hygiene and internet governance;

  • To network and encourage development of stronger youth civil society response to human rights and democracy challenges online.

The study session is organized by the HREYN with the financial, practical and educational support of the Youth Department of the Council of Europe.
