Hello everyone,
I hope you're all keeping well and safe these days.

Join us THIS Friday for the UK focused event titled - "Digital literacies for a healthy democracy" - hosted by the UK's Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) Committee.

This event is part of my Academic Parliamentary Fellowship, and it is meant to feed into the DCMS Online Safety Bill*, which was previously called the Online Harms Bill. This event brings together academics, practitioners and policymakers to discuss the current digital literacies landscape and talk about possible future paths.

UK focused event - Friday 11th June at 14:00 (BST time) panel participants:

  1.  Seyi Akiwowo - Glitch.
  2.  Hafsha Dadabhai Shaikh - Get Families Talking.
  3.  Sally Dyson - The Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO).
  4.  Professor Simeon Yates - Liverpool University.

The Twitter hashtag for the events is #DCMSComLiteracy.

The beginning of the panel will start with questions prepared in advance and then the discussion will be open for questions from the audience that will be asked on the Q&A section.

Insights from the event will be included in a final report for the DCMS Committee. If you're an academic, practitioner, activist, educator, or policymaker working in the areas of:

- digital/data literacies
- digital/data inequalities
- digital/data inclusion
- all topics around education

Please join the debate! Your participation and contribution are extremely valuable to this work.

* Here you can find the revised and recently published draft version of the Online Safety Bill - https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/draft-online-safety-bill.
