We’re promoting digital resilience among youth and civil society in Southeast Asia (SEA).
SEA Changemakers fosters digital resilience and citizenship among youth and civil society in three Southeast Asian countries: Cambodia, Myanmar and Vietnam. We work with local partners to support public outreach, digital safety training, and research and advocacy on the Internet landscape.
Since 2014, we’ve been supporting the changemaker generation: digital natives aged 18-25. They’re the ones leading the way as Internet use skyrockets across Southeast Asia, especially on social media. They’re also the ones who can champion safe, strong digital citizenship on the road ahead. Together, they can help their communities thrive in the global digital economy—without leaving vulnerable populations behind.
We build on the work of local civil society and researchers, while adapting the Foundation’s unique CyberSTAR digital safety framework. For organizations, CyberSTAR offers an integrated pathway that runs from safety audits through remediation and training. For everyone, it makes the digital safety universe accessible by framing it as six points of a star: risks, identity, passwords, conversations, devices and data.
