Digital

The digital field is one of our core directions aiming:
  • to offer digital empowerment through access to online tools, free education and networking
  • as well as
  • to increase the level of digital literacy among young people and youth workers.

  • In the past years, we have been involved in strategic initiatives connected with:
  • building digital skills for youth and youth workers (digital youth work);
  • tackling hate speech online;
  • digital citizenship education;
  • policymaking in the digital field.
