Presentation on digital engagement and youth action

Listen to my key address at the recent launch of a report published by Vinspired that explores four key trends in digital engagement that can lead to genuine offline impact. Vinspired, a charity that connects young people with volunteering opportunities, commissioned Freshminds Research to investigate the role digital technologies play in young people’s lives and how they can be effectively used online to inspire them to take offline action. I was asked to contribute a thought piece for the publication concerning the role of  ‘online influencers and advocates’ in digital engagement. I offered provocations across all four trends in my address, which ended with a poem I wrote about the energetics of change in online networks and a call for reflection to those aiming to facilitate youth action through digital engagement.
