Time to catch up on the world of Lead SA

What does 16 days of activism mean to you?

As much as social media can connect and motivate us, there are some dangers in the digital platform that impact teenagers.

Lead SA has been working with Web Rangers SA, (Media Monitoring Africa initiative) to build 16 stories from the experiences South African teens are facing in the online space.

The initiative is about bringing awareness to the dangers teenagers face online, and ways they can support and warn each other of the threats in the digital sphere.

It’s unbelievable the kind of information that they have access to these days and I just don’t think parents are often aware of that.

Dianne McAlpine, LeadSA Coordinator

The initiative is for teens, from teens says Lead SA Coordinator, Dianne McAlpine.

We started an Instagram page, because it’s teenagers, called Web Rangers Lead and we’ve asked these teenagers to develop stories around what they experience online and how to help, and how to stop these kinds of things from happening. So for example they go through cyber bullying, they look at catfishing and even sexing.

Dianne McAlpine, LeadSA Coordinator

We’ll be launching the campaign on Instagram so follow Web Rangers Lead on Instagram for a daily video and use #16Plus to join the conversation says Dianne.
