Ethical Digital Transformation for Global Youth

The United Youth Assembly (UYA) Jakarta (Indonesia) is a platform where the Youth IGF Indonesia and World Youth Summit brings together the foremost young leaders who want to learn, engage, and take action to solve these global challenges. The talent, drive, and innovation of youth is crucial to achieving a better world and the Sustainable Development Goals. This conference will equip hundreds of young people from around the world with new knowledge, skills, and networks needed to be leaders who can initiate change on a large scale.


Universitas Tarumanagara, DKI Jakarta.

17 – 19 January 2020

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.

Tarumanagara University is one of the longest standing institutions of higher education offering award-winning programs at both the undergraduate and graduate degree level. Proven by its track record over the last five decades in creating the next generation of great thinkers now serves as the foundation to its most recent goal: implementing technology within its curriculum to propel Indonesia to the frontier of tertiary education.

The Youth IGF Indonesia is a recognised initiative, initiated by TaC-Together Against Cybercrime International, described by the United Nations Internet Governance Forum (UN-IGF) as an existing IGF Initiative and part of the Youth IGF Movement since 2011.

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.

11:00 am - 12:30 pm Innovating together: connectivity that matters

Connectivity is central to development throughout the world, producing a direct, positive and measurable impact on economies and benefiting lives across every sector of society. Ensuring universal access to high-speed Internet, and the services, applications and products it enables, is essential. But it is not enough. To be meaningful, connectivity must be affordable, fit-for-purpose and relevant to local contexts, supported by digital literacy and skills, and accessible to the digitally disenfranchised such as those in rural and remote areas.
What innovative solutions, hybrid technology mixes and cross-sector partnerships can drive universal access? How can innovative regulatory approaches, government initiatives or incentives, and industry models impact on increasing meaningful connectivity? Can we nurture a culture of responsible innovation, rather than innovation for innovation’s sake? How can we work together to bring about meaningful, inclusive and relevant connectivity that improves lives everywhere?

How can we bring together all relevant stakeholders to establish and uphold digital principles in a globalized environment?

Millions of Indonesian children are affected bullies each year. Advances in social media, email, instant messaging and cell phones, however have moved bullying from a schoolyard fear to a constant threat.
Cyberbullying is a critical issue to the health and mental health of our children and teens. Eighty-seven percent of youth have witnessed cyberbullying. Nearly two-thirds of students who have experienced cyberbullying stated that it affected their ability to learn and feel safe at school.

In recent years cyberbullying has become widespread throughout junior high schools around the world, resulting in high numbers of adolescents affected by cybervictimization. Cybervictimization is associated with negative psychological health outcomes. What are the types of cyberbullying? Does cyberbullying related to traditional bullying? Is there any solutions to fight cyberbullying?

2:30 pm - 2:45 pm Accessibility matters: dismantling the barriers of disability with technology

According to WHO’s World Disability Report, approximately 15% of the world population – or more than 1 billion people - lives with some form of disability. ICTs are widely used to enable people living with disabilities to lead more independent lives by removing barriers limiting their participation in society. Technology can enable better access to health, education, government services and the job market for all those affected by disabilities. But what more can be done, in both emerging and developed markets? Can existing solutions be scaled and adapted? Is there a business case for digital inclusion solutions?

2:45 pm - 4:00 pm Future skills for a future world

Technologies continue to be designed and used to reshape every sector of society and the economy, challenging our ability to adapt to the pace of change. The job market is no exception – and disruption in the world of work has profound implications for existing educational systems.
How can we prepare the next generation of workers for jobs that may not yet exist? What skills will be needed to succeed in a future characterized by automatization, robots and AI? How can lifelong learning in the workplace equip us for constant change, and will we be able to keep pace with technological disruption? How should educational systems and institutions adapt and respond? Will the challenges of the job market in the digital age differ between emerging and developed markets? Will we need to work at all in the future – and if not, what will we do?

Secretary General
United Youth Assembly Jakarta
Tarumanagara University

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
Secretary General
United Youth Assembly Jakarta
