About

We broaden the participation in the governance of the digital ecosystem, understanding that this encompasses decisions about the internet, the development of digital technologies and of data policies.

We promote Latin American projects in critical digital education to bridge the different gaps in our global digital citizenship.

We innovate solutions guided by human rights, integrating the different dimensions of the digital ecosystem that intersect with individuals, societies and the environment.

We act collectively, focusing on younger generations and generally excluded groups, to look towards a fairer digital future for all.

Facilitated by Natalia Trigoso (Causas Digitales), Marielos Galindo (Red Concausa), Laura Vidal (Mozilla) and Soledad Magnone (JAAKLAC initiative).
