What happens to my stuff on FaceBook?
You shouldn't be cut off for file-sharing.
It's too easy to bully someone online.
If young people you're working with are having discussions like this then HUWY wants to hear from you.
HUWY http://www.huwy.eu/uk is an EU project that aims to get politicians to listen to what young people have to say about the Internet.
The short session at the Institute of Education on 9th July will cover:
- What HUWY is
- How you can use it in your work
- What you'll need to do to participate
It also includes lunch and time to network and share ideas.
Who should attend?
If you are the leader of a youth group or are involved in a youth network then please come along to this short briefing session.

More about HUWY http://huwy.eu
The HUWY project aims to get young people talking about policies and laws which affect the Internet and channel this to people in governments and parliaments, working on these policies. Young people choose the topics and questions, host the discussions on their web pages and post the results on Hubs provided by the project. HUWY partners provide information and support and involve young people and youth groups.
HUWY also organise people working on Internet policies to read and use the results. The online Hubs hold supporting information, space for the results of young people’s discussions and feedback from policy-makers.
How it works
HUWY believe that young people are valuable expert stakeholders in current Internet governance issues like
- child abuse and child safety,
- freedom of speech and censorship,
- privacy and phishing, security, identity, hacking, e-commerce,
- file-sharing and copyright.
We aim to support young people and youth groups to hold informed discussions on these topics in their own online spaces and help to publish their results and ideas in a way that is useful to policy-makers.
