Amnesty International’s Global Youth Summit on Digital Rights brings together child and youth human rights activists and their allies to envision a world that respects the digital rights, health and well-being of children and young people.  

The purpose of the Summit is to:

  • Harness the reach and power of the internet to ensure voices of children and young people are heard and respected. 
  • Call on governments to guarantee a safe, rights-respecting digital environment and ensure equal access to the internet, recognising the diversity of the world’s child and youth population. 
  • Recognise the role children and young people play in finding solutions to the problems facing the world such as climate justice, racial justice, ending gun violence, sexual and reproductive health rights, and now the fight for a rights-respecting digital world. 

Digital Rights Champions, a group of 15 children and youth leaders from across the world with passion, expertise and commitment to digital rights will lead discussions at the summit.
