2017 Digital Citizenship Summit
Utah Valley Convention Center, Provo, UT
November 2-3, 2017
Join hundreds of influencers at the third annual Digital Citizenship Summit (DigCitSummit) hosted by EPIK Deliberate Digital in Provo, UT. The theme this year is EXPAND.
EXPAND the conversation around kids and technology.
EXPAND your network.
EXPAND our shared impact toward a more Positive DigCit culture.
This flagship DigCitSummit event will be different than most conferences. We won't be having a one-way lecture/panel model, but rather will be engaging together in roundtable sharing and discussion. Every voice will matter, including the voices of youth who attend the meetings. #NotAboutThemWithoutThem
See our FAQ for more details about age and other requirements for youth attendance. For travel and lodging information, please see the DigCitSummit travel & lodging microsite created by our service partner, the Utah Valley Visitor's Bureau.
The DigCitSummit is really about creating a movement of people making an impact -- ripples -- in their own spheres to change the way we as adults and kids alike talk about, teach, and engage the powerful and ever-expanding digital landscape of our day.

"It's time to move beyond just stemming the tide of digital dangers and warning parents of rough waters ahead. The time has come to turn the tide and create real digital change in our homes and communities through a more positive approach.
This positive, collaborative approach is brilliant and groundbreaking. And I believe it is the key to bring real social change to the whole culture."
-Dina Alexander, President and Founder, Educate and Empower Kids
