GRAND THEME : Ethical Digital Transformation for Global Youth

We are living in a period of unprecedented change, almost all of it driven or enabled by technology and mostly by emerging digital technologies. For young leaders and organisations who are willing to wade in and seek to understand the transformations taking place there are limitless possibilities. Possibilities to reach new people and move to new models – increasing the reach, impact and effectiveness of programs, services, regulation and policy.

There are tensions around the benefits offered by artificial intelligence and the need to guard against algorithmic bias, especially on how to utilize this IT advancement to tackle youth unemployment.

Many of the emerging technologies driving digital change in the nations come with attached problems or anxieties that are not strictly about technology but also involve community expectations or perceptions of fairness. There are potential conflicts between optimising public good to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals and managing the risk of inadvertent harms or unintended consequences.

None of this can be ignored. Recognising the ethical issues around digital transformation and allowing ethics to shape the design process is a key challenge, and will be for the next decade.

Like it or not, huge digital transformation is happening across the public sector. Navigating it successfully requires approaching the future with informed optimism. Those who prosper will be the curious – able to balance the risk and the potential that both exist within the new.

It is a movement that operates as a multi-stakeholder platform, which allows Indonesian young people to discuss and take a lead in issues related to Internet governance in the format of local, national and international discussions.

The Youth IGF Indonesia missions are to provide an open platform to the Indonesian youth community to discuss Internet Governance issues that are relevant to Indonesian in a national level from a youth point of view; Bring the youth community together to engage with different stakeholders (the government, civil society (academia, students, media, youth), private sector and technical community) to discuss and exchange ideas in addressing Internet-related challenges. Thus, promoting a multi-stakeholder dialogue between these stakeholders and the youth community.

We bring the youth community in the table in order to include and amplify their voices so they can be a voice of influence in the making of the Internet-related policies in Indonesia.

Warmest Greetings to Everyone,

It is a true pleasure for me to inform and invite you to the first United Youth Assembly Jakarta, hosted by Youth Internet Governance Forum (IGF) Indonesia and United Youth Circuit, that going to be held at Tarumanegara University, from 17th to 19th January 2020.

Twenty-five years after Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone, it had reached about eight million people. Twenty-five years after the invention of the world wide web, the internet has reached more than four billion people.

The world has never known such a rapid pace of technological change, while digital technology has created enormous opportunities, at the same time, the lack of preparation and cooperation by the international community is leading to some very bad outcomes.

Social media enhances our connections to friends and family – but is also used to broadcast hate and violence, disrupt social cohesion and invade privacy. We celebrate the achievements of artificial intelligence and automation, but we are wary of their weaponization, of the biases built into their algorithms, and of their impact on employment levels across the globe.

The United Youth Assembly Jakarta takes the theme of “Ethical Digital Transformation for Global Youth” to represent the potential and possibilities for young people in a fast-changing world. In the United Youth Assembly Jakarta, we are simulating 6 diversified committees; United Nations High-Level Panel on Digital Cooperation, United Nations Security Council (UNSC), General Assembly Disarmament and International Security Committee (DISEC), General Assembly Social, Humanitarian & Cultural Issues (SOCHUM), United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).

With the guarantee that the world is going to witness the biggest MUN-Conference, we are also presenting our delegates a full day conference with outstanding keynote speakers in their field, 3 special events that are Jakarta City Tour (Visit to Museum Bank Indonesia and the ASEAN Secretariat), Cultural Night and Diplomatic Dinner.

The United Youth Assembly Jakarta aims to build towards a critical mess of youth action needed to catalyse change for a better world. Delegates will leave the United Youth Assembly Jakarta newly equipped to confront challenges, seize opportunities, and make a difference in their societies and communities.

Therefore, I kindly ask you accept our invitation and participate at the United Youth Assembly Jakarta, this November 2019. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with the undersigned, if you need further information.


Most sincerely,

Agita Pasaribu, LL.B., M.A
