We bring together ordinary citizens, lauded experts, policy makers, and futuristic thinkers to debate what it takes to create an equitable, inclusive digital future.
The Youth Leadership Board is keen to understand the realities of young people across the world and the obstacles they face to being fully included, safe and free in the digital world.
We are striving for an internet in which everyone, regardless of their background, age, ability, race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation, is able to enjoy the benefits of a safe and secure internet.
The Avast Foundation works in partnership with people and communities to knock down barriers to digital freedom and equity. Our programs deliver meaningful change and help shape a world where technology plays a positive role in building and sustaining communities
Young people are leading the charge against injustice and inequality globally. The Spark Fund provides them with the financial resources and support to harness the power of technology and build a better, safer and more inclusive world.
Be Safe Online believes that the most effective way to keep children safe online is not through banning access to the internet, but through compelling and actionable education.
We facilitate volunteering and donation opportunities for Avast staff, tapping into our network of dedicated experts, caring community members, and engaged digital citizens to increase our impact and demonstrate the better, safer, more inclusive world we want to see.
Avastians around the globe are always seeking opportunities to help and grow local communities. We encourage all Avast staff to engage with causes and organizations that align with their values and are working to improve their communities.
