GOALS

OF THE CONFERENCE

The speakers are tasked with delivering key takeaways on topics related to responsible digital citizenship in their respective industries. Panels, which are made up of industry leaders and subject matter experts, are tasked with deriving a path to develop professional consensus on responsible digital behaviour by youth and adults alike, as well as by social media, news, private and not for profit corporations.  Work groups are creating proposals prior to the conference on guidelines on coordinated professional consultative oversight, which are to be discussed and qualified at the conference.  The event’s goal is to develop a wide range of tools to facilitate education, training and solutions advocating and supporting the development of responsible digital citizenship. In turn, NCRDC will serve as the initial change management tool in adapting a new, widened-scope, pragmatic and a results oriented approach to responsible digital citizenship.​
