Google is launching Internet Citizens, a series of day-long workshops for 13-18 year olds in cities across the U.K., which supports creators who are tackling social issues and promoting awareness, tolerance and empathy on their YouTube channels.

Some of the specific topics deal with offensive speech, fake news, echo chambers and how they could use video to bring diverse groups together.
