Connected Planet - Opportunity Alert for High School Students

“Connected Planet”: Young Global Citizens & the Tech Diplomacy Network

The Tech Diplomacy Network has worked with Austrian-American student Elsa Fredericks to offer an exciting international relations opportunity for high school students.

Students can learn how technology is changing diplomacy and receive a certificate for attending. The free Zoom series features experts to answer student questions and will take place over three sessions:

  • March 26: Introduction to tech diplomacy
  • April 16: Climate change and technology
  • May 7: Implications of rapid progress in AI

Any student who attends all three Zoom sessions will receive a “Certificate of Introduction to Tech Diplomacy” from the Tech Diplomacy Network.

Martin Rauchbauer will be the speaker for the initial March 26th session. It will take place at 4:30-5:30 pm PT / 7:30-8:30 pm ET. Martin was Austria’s first tech envoy to Silicon Valley and launched the Open Austria tech initiative in the Bay Area. He is the co-founder of the Tech Diplomacy Network, which includes diplomats representing 25 different countries and fosters collaboration and dialogue between the diplomatic community, civil society, and the tech industry. The student moderator is Elsa Fredericks, a junior at Redwood High School in Larkspur, CA, who writes on environmental education as tech diplomacy.
