CONNECTED

What is Connected?

Based on real life experiences, Connected is a short film exploring how young people communicate and connect online. The film encourages young people to reflect on why their actions matter and the impact it can have on others. We shape the internet everyday with our interactions. You can play a part in creating a better, connected online world.
