Roundtable II: Connecting the superpowers of digital natives with parliament

21st May 2024, 10:00 - 11:30 CEST


INTER PARES, IPU and IPEN present “Connecting the superpowers of digital natives with parliament”, the second session in its Roundtable Series. 

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.
