Young Digital Leaders Impact Report

Young Digital Leaders is a Europe-wide education pilot project aiming to empower young people through digital citizenship, critical thinking and media literacy skills, so that they can become tomorrow’s digital leaders.

The project, developed in partnership with Google, was created in order to equip young people with the skills they need to be safe, powerful and effective online citizens in the 21st century, and to explore new ways of teaching digital citizenship in formal educational settings in Europe. The pilot phase has pioneered a unique, collaborative partnership model between students, teachers, parents and local civil society organisations across Europe.

GEYC is one of the three organisations at European level that has delivered trainings on digital citizenship, critical thinking and media literacy skills. The project had positive results in improving fundamental digital citizenship capacities among students, especially increasing their digital skills and knowledge.
