iRights Nottingham Youth Juries
9th April 2015
What are the iRights Youth Juries?
The iRights Youth Juries are special events to allow children and young people to have a say about their rights on the internet. At the Youth Juries participants will be asked to consider, debate and share ideas about the future of the internet.
What are they aiming to achieve?
The results of the Youth Juries will feed into a major national report, which will be published by iRights in collaboration with The University of Leeds and The University of Nottingham (CaSMa). The report will provide evidence about young people’s views on the future of the internet and their rights online and will feed into future policy by government, industry and academic networks as a part of the wider iRights campaign to highlight the importance of young people’s rights on the internet.
Who can take part?
The Youth Juries are open to young people aged 12-17 years from a wide range of backgrounds and areas. Each Youth Jury will be attended by a group of 10-15 young people. Participants don’t need to have any experience or qualifications to take part.
What can I expect at the Youth Jury?
The Youth Jury will be highly interactive and will feature actors and scenarios as a way of sparking debate. It will be fun and engaging, and will allow the space for everyone to put their opinions across. Participants will be asked to complete a short survey at the beginning and end of each jury session’
