Since 2018 Cristiana has become one of the Code Week Ambassadors in Romania, movement that aims to bring coding closer to the young generation. As a strategic goal regarding GEYC, Cristiana is eager to support individuals in their growth and development which, she believes, can be obtained through each and every small action we take in this direction.

  • First of all, what is GEYC and what is the mission of the organization?
 
To start with the beginning, GEYC or the Group of the European Youth for Change is a Romanian NGO that has been founded back in 2010 in Bucharest, Romania. We are active at local, national and international level and through our activities we encourage entrepreneurship, digitalization, stimulate social responsibility while standing for human rights.
 
  • In what sense do you empower the young people?
 
We are young people working with young people through both peer-to-peer education and mass communication supported by youth leaders. Each project we create or initiative we join, we try to adapt it based on the community needs.
 
  • Among others projects, your entity organize the European Digital Youth Summit – EDYS. Can you explain what is this event about?
 
European Digital Youth Summit#EDYS18 is a multistakeholder event aiming to bring together 100 representatives of organizations, companies, media, academia and young people in order to discuss the impact of European projects with a particular focus on new digital technologies and young people.

Initiated by GEYC in 2014, EDYS is now a bi-annual event aiming to create a high-level of discussions on the most important topics for young people in a continuously changing digital world. This year the event will take place in Brasov, Romania, on the 14th of December. We are also welcoming international participants, so for more info on the topic of the conference or how you can apply, we invite you to have a look at the following link: https://www.edys.eu/apply-now.
 
  • What other initiatives or projects are organized in GEYC?

One of the most relevant projects we are involved in through which we stand for online activism and digital transformation of youth NGOs is TURN ONline, a KA2 Strategic Partnership, funded by the Erasmus+ program of the EU and developed in collaboration with 6 other NGOs from Spain, Poland, Bulgaria, Hungary and Greece.

In this context, a proof of oir digital citizenship approach is Young Digital Leaders, an Europe-wide education project aiming to empower young people through digital citizenship, critical thinking and media literacy skills.

The main aim of this program is to encourage youth in becoming tomorrow’s digital leaders. The project, developed in partnership with Google and the Institute for Strategic Dialogue, was created in order to equip young people with the skills they need to be safe, powerful and effective online citizens in the 21st century, and to explore new ways of teaching digital citizenship in formal educational settings in Europe.
 
Lately we have been focusing a lot on the digital sector and, in this order of ideas, I have also become involved in the Europe Code Week initiative as an Ambassador for Romania. Through this program, I aim is to support organisations in the process of building digital skills the young generation needs. Find out more about Code Week here: https://codeweek.eu/
 
  • How is the level of digital technology among young European people?
 
I personally think that what young European people need at the moment is a deep understanding of information protection in the digital world. By getting involved in the education sector and by raising awareness towards this topic young people can use online networks and tools in a safer, more efficient and more innovative way.
 
  • You have collaborated with an initiative organized by the Catalan project Turn Online. How do you value this experience?  
TURN Online initiative has had a great offline and online impact in the Romanian community and not only. Also, it benefited from international awareness, as it was one of the main projects presented during the Internet Governance Forum, hosted by UNESCO in Paris, in October 2018.

I really appreciate the support we constantly offer one to another in the coordinating team, as without it, nothing would have been possible. In what is coming next, we will continue by organising a TURN ONline workshop during the EDYS Conference in December. Also, we are preparing the launch of the MOOC platform. Last, but not least, we are getting ready for the Final TURN ONline Conference that will take place in Barcelona in February 2019. So my advice for you is: Keep an eye on our activities, great things are about to happen!
 
 
To conclude the interview: There is no excuse not to TURN ONline! J

Es pot canviar el món mirant la tele?

Es pot canviar el món mirant la tele?

Comunicar per transformar és un objectiu compartit per periodistes compromesos i per professionals d’entitats socials que ens dediquem a informar sobre la realitat social, però: és possible modificar marcs mentals a través de la informació? En quina mesura incidim en els valors de les persones o modifiquem creences i actituds? Més enllà de les notícies del dia a dia que omplen les seccions de societat, juguem algun paper en la construcció del relat i l’imaginari social que pot mobilitzar o condicionar el comportament polític la ciutadania?

Aquest és el punt de partida del debat que l’Agència de Comunicació Social d’ECAS, Lafede.cat i el Col·legi de Periodistes organitzen organitzen aquest vespre, sota el títol ‘Es pot canviar el món mirant la tele? Despertar consciències i construir imaginaris més enllà de la informació ‘, i que vol reflexionar sobere al voltant de les limitacions de la informació a l’hora de modificar actituds i mobilitzar la ciutadania.

Hi intervindran Gisela Pou, guionista de TV3; Santi Rodríguez, de Producciones del Barrio, responsable de programes com Salvados i la nostra companyaSonia Ros, respresentant a Quepo.

Des de la Fila Zero, compartir aprenentatges, hi haurà la Rosa Cadenas, presidenta de Dincat, amb l’experiència de la pel·lícula ‘Campeones’, representants de ‘Casa nostra, casa vostra’ parlant de la docusèrie Vides aturades i Beatriz Serrano d’Accem amb la campanya Save a hater.

Parlarem i debatrem sobre el compromís des de la nostra professió; sobre els formats i com adaptar el missatge a cada canal, quins són els temes que tractem i com plantegem l’enfocament, sobre línies vermelles i també de la relació i les aliances amb les companyes del sector.

Tot plegat avui dimarts, 13 de novembre a les 18h al Col·legi de Periodistes (Rambla Catalunya 10, Barcelona).

Why web 3.0 will be and is the digital revolution

Why web 3.0 will be and is the digital revolution

 
There are a number of advantages offered by the web 3.0. Below we detail the main features that differentiate it from the web 2.0.
No central point of control 
Middlemen are removed from the equation, blockchains like Ethereum provide a trust-less platform where the rules are unbreakable and data is fully encrypted. Alphabet and Apple will no longer have control of user data. No government or entity will have the ability to kill sites and services; and no single individual can control the identities of others.
 
Ownership of data 
End users will regain complete control of data and have the security of encryption. Information can then be shared on a case-by-case and permissioned basis.

At present, big companies like Amazon and Facebook have factories of servers storing information on dietary preferences, income, interests, credit card details and more. It’s not merely to improve their services — marketers and advertisers pay billions each year for the data.

Dramatic reduction in hacks and data breaches: Because data will be decentralized and distributed, hackers would need to turn off the entire network, while state-sponsored tools such as Vault7, used by the three-letter agencies, would be rendered obsolete.

At present, internet companies are compelled to hand over user data or succumb to having the entire database scrutinized. These data intrusions aren’t just limited to major security threats such as terrorism; in 2017, Coinbase took the IRS to court over its demand to see the data of over 15,000 customers.

Interoperability 
Applications will be easy to customize and device-agnostic, capable of running on smartphones, TVs, automobiles, microwaves and smart sensors. At present, applications are OS-specific, and are often limited to a single operating system. For instance, many Android cryptocurrency wallets are unavailable on iOs, causing frustration for consumers who use multiple devices. It adds expenses for developers tasked with issuing multiple iterations and updates of their software.

Permissionless blockchains
Anyone can create an address and interact with the network. The power to access permissionless chains cannot be overstated. Users will not be barred on account of geography, income, gender, orientation or a host of other sociological and demographic factors. Wealth and other digital assets can be transferred cross-border, quickly and efficiently, anywhere in the world.

Uninterrupted service
Account suspension and distributed denial of service are dramatically reduced. Because there’s no single point of failure, service disruption will be minimal. Data will be stored on distributed nodes to ensure redundancy and multiple backups will prevent server failure or seizure.
