European youth are invited to shape the Youth Manifesto for a Better Internet

European youth are invited to have their say on what the internet of the future should look like. Their ideas will shape the Youth manifesto for a Better Internet to be presented to the European Commission and Members of the European Parliament in a high-level event in early November 2014. Young people (between the ages of 9 and 18) also have the opportunity to engage in a competition of resources created for other young people and uploaded to the website. The six most active youth (and their accompanying teachers) will attend the events in Brussels to present the manifesto to policy makers. To take part, visit www.youthmanifesto.eu and start sharing your ideas and resources.

eTwinning is supporting this initiative and invite young people working in eTwinning projects related to a better use of Internet to take part to the Youth Manifesto competition. An eTwinning project kit will be publish soon to provide teachers with a step-by-step guide to start a project on Internet safety and a better use of Internet.
