Cyber outreach synergies
International Conference on Cyber Youth Work
Are you an educator, social worker or innovator concerned about youth media culture? If so, you will want to know about a big international conference, co-organized by HKFYG that is coming up next week. Topics include social media and youth disconnection, video games in education, social media trends and literacy, as well youth cyberbullying and new initiatives in youth suicide prevention.

The International Conference on Cyber Youth Work, funded by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, will be wide-ranging, with a line-up of speakers from Australia, Korea and Japan as well as local opinion leaders, online media professionals and eSports specialists. The keynote speech is about a cyber-youth work model for Hong Kong - an area central to core services at HKFYG and we think much insight will be shared.
