  • No matter in Hong Kong or Thailand, we can see more and more high school students join the movements and become the game changer. However, those young protesters may not be able to easily access or understand the materials and guidelines which were created for adult activists or NGO workers, and there were ideas generated:
    • basic security, security 101 those simple guideline may be helpful.
    • Students use social media for movements and personal life a lot, they should be cafeful if they provide too much information all together. It may be an important topic to develop the guidline.
    • Many schools around the world experineces remote teaching this year. Hence, more and more security kit for kids may be generated already.
    • In several researches, there was a lot of feedback indicating that young people especially aren’t practising digital security, it’s definitely a cross-cutting challenge.
    • Tibetan groups has some funny videos to demostrate the important of cybersecurity: https://tibetaction.net/digitalsecurity/ ; https://tibetaction.net/
