This initiative aims to raise awareness, foster understanding, and encourage concrete actions to protect online users while empowering them with essential digital literacy knowledge.
At the heart of the Digital Savvy Indonesia event lies a captivating talk show centered around the theme of digital literacy. Guest speakers, comprising experts in the field, were invited to share their insights, experiences, and recommendations. This platform provided a wealth of information, shedding light on the significance of digital literacy in today’s interconnected world. Attendees gained valuable knowledge on navigating the digital landscape safely and responsibly, enabling them to make informed decisions and protect themselves from potential online threats.
To further promote the cause, the Digital Savvy Indonesia event held focused group discussions (FGDs) that tackled pressing concerns related to digital literacy. These FGDs served as a platform for participants to engage in constructive conversations, brainstorm ideas, and develop strategies to address three key issues: education, environment, and mental health. By fostering collaboration and collective problem-solving, the event strives to generate innovative solutions that can effectively safeguard internet users and create a healthier online ecosystem.
