What Does It Mean to Be a Digital Citizen?

What Does It Mean to Be a Digital Citizen?

With our digital engagement higher than ever, this is the time to reflect on our online behaviours and assess who has agency across the online landscape. As our relationship with technology and our online relationships with each other continue to evolve, how can we individually and collectively make the digital world better?

The Walrus Talks at Home: Digital Citizenship brings together leaders in the online sphere to share their learnings on power dynamics in our digital systems, the responsibilities of users and tech leaders, the rift between users’ virtual and real lives, the way we nurture positive online community, and the resources available to improve our media literacy.

Join us for this timely conversation about how informed intentional action can foster positive digital exchange.
