The youth are considered digital natives—they were born, and they grew up with the presence of digital technologies and the internet. According to a research in 2017, more than 80% of the youth population (15-24 years old) worldwide are online. A more recent survey also reported that people aged 16 to 64 around the world spend an average of 6 hours on internet per day. As the use of digital technologies and the internet becomes more prominent as the years go by, it is important for people to also increase their knowledge and understanding of cybersafety and digital citizenship.
The global pandemic has also urged people to suddenly shift to more digital activities—online payment, online consultation, online classes, and more. The need to discuss how people, especially the youth, use and act on the digital platforms is more prominent now more than ever.
“Digital Wellbeing of Filipino Learners: A Webinar on Youth Cybersafety and Digital Citizenship” will give emphasis on the importance of cybersafety and digital citizenship given the current pandemic situation, especially in the school setting. It will tackle the basics of what digital citizenship is and how schools can further protect and guide their learners as they spend more time online.

To dig deeper on how digital citizenship may help in adapting to the new normal in education, an online learning event for the youth and education leaders is proposed. The webinar aims to:
· Raise awareness and interest on the importance of cybersafety and digital citizenship in schools to ensure a safe online learning environment;
· Gather ideas on how the youth could take part in the adoption of a digital citizenship strategy in the new education setup; and
· Identify means of collaborating and continuing the learning exchange beyond the webinar.
