Please specify how you intend to contribute to the work of the ccNSO at the
next ICANN meeting:
I can present or participate in a round table discussion on two topics:

Media literacy
We're recently started a program in highschools that is focusing on media
literacy and critical perception of the digital content. The program
combines lectures and practical exercises where the students are confronted
with problematic digital practices like click bait, native advertising,
algorithmic projections and filter bubble. We then analyse these practices
together and develop effective ways of countering them. The program is
relevant to high school students (15-18 yrs) and primary school students (9 -
11 yrs).

Digital rights
Digital rights and the popularisation of internet governance participation is
becoming more and more important. We're focusing our efforts on popularising
themes of net neutrality, media literacy and digital privacy and security and
also helping the netizens to engage and participate in the decision making
processes in these areas.
