CPH Tech Policy Youth Committee
The CPH Tech Policy Youth Committee is an interdisciplinary network of engaged and ambitious students who represent perspectives from the youth in tech policy debates. The youth committee is an interdisciplinary initiative that engages with key stakeholders in the field of tech and digitalization.
While digitalization brings advantages, it also raises concerns. It is essential to involve and engage the youth in the ongoing digital transformation, as it directly affects their future and because they possess an incredible amount of knowledge from growing up in a digital world.
Our goal is to forward a plurality of voices represented in our generation on questions of tech and digitalization with a common, although not completely unison, understanding of what should guide future development; asking what society we want, and then ask: ‘Could tech possibly enable that?’, recognizing that technological development doesn't necessarily equal human development. We want to make tomorrow more just and inclusive, utilize digital technologies to overcome historical and encoded bias, improve future generations' life conditions, and call for a rights-promoting approach.
The youth committee is a high-commitment committee. We meet four times per semester at meetings centered around different topics within the field of tech policy. In addition to this, we strive to host events (both internally and externally), write opinion pieces and policy briefs, and engage with key stakeholders in academia, the private/public sector, and civil society. We organize working groups centered around different projects the committee members are interested in.

The Youth Committee is open to collaboration and partnerships. Feel free to get in contact, if you or an organization you represent are interested in collaborating or want our perspective on initiatives, topics or trends within the field.
The CPH Tech Policy Youth Committee is open to students enrolled or on exchange at a Danish University who wish to engage themselves in the present and future development of Tech Policy. We seek to cultivate diversity among members and encourage students from all academic backgrounds to apply. Currently, the committee is comprised of 25 students with 14 academic backgrounds from 6 of the Danish universities.
The committee is open to new members two times a year - in September and December.
