Digitally Connected & Conectados al Sur

Digitally Connected is a collaborative initiative between UNICEF and the Berkman Klein Center building upon a multi-year partnership for analyzing digital and social media growth and trends among children and youth globally. For updated information about Digitally Connected, please visit:


Conectados al Sur (, a regional initiative of the global Digitally Connected network, addresses the opportunities and challenges pertaining to children and youth in the digital environment in the Latin American and Caribbean region.

The Conectados al Sur network has at its core a regional network consisting of academics, practitioners, young people, activists, philanthropists, government officials, and representatives of technology companies.

The core elements of the initiative are the following:

  • Events: We host, co-host, and participate in learning calls, webinars, events etc. on core issues with human rights and social justice relevance, including (but not limited to) issues such as inequitable access, risks to safety and privacy, skills and digital literacy, and spaces for participation and innovation. Current/past events include:
  • Network building: We have made significant commitments to strengthen the connections between the Berkman Center, UNICEF, and our Latin American collaborators, both at the individual and institutional level.
