A recent poll of 170 young South Australians found that the most pressing rights-based issue they face is being able to trust the websites they visit, to not take advantage of them. After exploring this topic further with another 200 young people across the state, it has become clear that a big part of this issue is knowing when and how to ‘block’, ‘ignore’, ‘report’, ‘delete’ and ‘speak up’.
To address this issue, South Australia Cyber Security Innovation Node (AustCyber) in partnership with the South Australian Commissioner for Children and Young People have come together to launch a new D3 Challenge, Digital Trust – Young, Online & Confident, to find a solution to support young people interact with confidence in the online world.
If you are a start-up, social innovator, budding digital entrepreneur, designer, technology enthusiast, developer, or hobbyist, success in a D3 Challenge may be the ideal way to build and grow a business. Get involved in D3 #7 and in return you will receive mentoring and the chance to gain financial support to further develop your idea.
Come along to an information and connection event to learn more about D3 Digital Challenge #7:
When: Thursday 4 July 2019, 4.45pm to 6.30pm (includes half hour networking)
