Connecting the superpowers of ‘digital natives’ with parliament

21 May 2024

This Public Engagement Hub webinar is jointly organised by the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU), IPEN and INTER PARES

Date and time: Tuesday 21 May (09:00-10:30 GMT+1 / UK time; 10:00-11:30 CEST)

Moderator: Lotte Geunis, INTER PARES

Speakers: Pradip Kahtiwada, Executive Director, Youth Innovation Lab, Nepal; Hanah Lahe, Member of the Riigikogu, Estonia; Andres Lomp, Community Engagement Manager, Parliament of Victoria, Australia; Nerima Wako, Executive Director, SIASA Place, Kenya 
Bringing together the perspectives of parliaments and young people, this roundtable considers opportunities and challenges for connecting parliament with ‘digital natives’ born or brought up during the age of digital technology. How can digital natives engage parliaments in efforts towards transparency, accountability and participation? How can parliaments draw upon the skills and know-how of young people to strengthen their practices? 

Join us for a conversation that explores what digital natives have to offer to parliaments and vice versa, how this complements parliaments’ search for efficiency and independence, and what this could look like in practice.

This event will take place on Zoom and is open to anyone with an interest in public engagement with parliaments.

This event will be presented in English. Translation will be available from/to French.
