About this Summit
Tanzania Youth Digital Summit- TYDS is an annual event jointly hosted by Digital Opportunity Trust (DOT) Tanzania and the ICT Commission Tanzania, as a direct effort to support and advocate for digital skills development for Tanzanian youth.
The event inspires the innovation and participation of young people in the digital ecosystem, championing youth voices through co-design labs, consultative discussions, and workshops.
TYDS 2022, is an exciting four days of engaging topics around ICT in Education, ICT for Youth Jobs and Businesses, and Digital Green (Youth and Climate Change). Young people from all over Tanzania regions will attend hybrid workshops to learn new digital skills and the latest opportunities within the digital economy.
Physical workshops will be held in Arusha, Dar Es Salaam, Dodoma, Iringa, Kigoma, Morogoro, Mwanza, Tanga, Tabora, and Zanzibar. All sessions will be broadcasted live on social media to allow young people from other regions to attend virtually and engage with their peers.
We are also introducing a transformative feature to the summit that will bring young people and policymakers together to discuss digital skills development among youth. These are conversations led by youth for youth. This is a joint initiative under the patronage of Honorable Neema Lugangira, Member of Parliament representing NGOs in Tanzania Mainland.
