Training Course: [ES-368] Stay safe in cyberspace, 12.06.2021-19.06.2021, Torremolinos, Spain


“Stay safe in cyber space” (SSCS) project was a mobility of youth workers, KA1 Training Course, under Erasmus+ and has been implemented by Asociación PROJUVEN. The training course took place in Torremolinos (Málaga area), Spain and involved 20 youth workers from 6 different countries (Estonia, Hungary, Bulgaria, Latvia, Romania and Spain).

The main aim of “Stay safe in cyber space” was to provide youth workers with new knowledge and competences on cyberbullying. In this regard, the specific objectives of the project for youth workers were to:
  • reflect youth workers’ role in relation to cyberbullying which affect an increase number of young people;
  • improve youth workers’ knowledge of cyberbullying and how to prevent and address it; 
  • encourage social media literacy and knowledge among youth workers to combat cyberbullying.

The project used non formal learning methodology including methods such as: ice breakers, energizers, name games, reflection groups, working into intercultural subgroups, facilitated discussion, creative presentations, simulation, case study, and debates.

"The project ‘Stay safe in cyberspace’ represented not only a way of improving my knowledge but also a whole experience that contributes to my evolution as an individual. It was a time of discovering, learning and researching towards the topic we all showed interest in. I think it was a successful project and fulfilled all its aims by the end. Getting to understand the topic better, becoming more aware, getting useful information, making new friendships, discovering new cultures and creating boundaries are some of the key headlines of the experience that help us build and contribute to our European values as EU citizens. I have learned a lot of information during the training, and I was exposed to different opinions and points of view based on each participants background. I think the most important thing besides the informational part is inclusion and how to cooperate effectively with people. I would happily repeat the experience and I am very thankful for this opportunity."
