Youngsters grow up in a digitally connected world. What do these developments mean for youth work? Discover the concept of digital youth work, best practices, learn how to adapt youth work practices and how to proactively meet young people’s needs?

General Description

Young people grow up in a digitally connected world, where automation, machine learning and artificial intelligence are no longer futuristic concepts, but already a reality.

For young people, the difference between “online” and “offline” is increasingly blurred. Social media and internet usage have established themselves as important parts of youth culture.

  • What do these developments mean for youth work?

To be fair – youth workers don’t need to be technical experts when it comes to new media and technology. However, they should recognize that young people are growing up in a digital era and that they need support in navigating the online aspect of their lives.

During these 4 day conference youth workers from across Europe will be invited to learn, explore and exchange about the various forms and best practices of “digital youth work”.

Through panel discussion, keynote speeches, as well as workshops and project presentations at a fair, participants will benefit from many valuable contributions from field experts and from exchanges with other participants on a variety of topics including information and data literacy, communication through digital channels, problem solving by using digital tools, online safety and many more.

Ultimately, they will have the opportunity to discuss and formulate the needs and wishes of the sector for the digital youth work in presence of policy makers.

Venue: Tallinn, Estonia

Eligible are 40 participants coming from: Austria, Belgium – FL, Belgium – FR, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Republic of North Macedonia, Serbia, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Partner Countries Neighbouring the EU

Application deadline: 10th July 2019

Apply to our interactive Media & Information Literacy Project Lab if you are eager to start your own project(s) to tackle fake news, cyber-bullying, sextortion, digital security or other topics connected to the Media and Information Literacy!

General Description

SALTO Participation and Information Resource Centre (SALTO PI) has initiated a project on Media and Information Literacy (MIL) and is developing a set of activities and resources to improve MIL skills of young people, youth activists, youth leaders and youth workers.

On the 28th–30th of August 2019 (arrivals on the 27th of August), about 40 participants will come together in Tallinn to meet media experts, learn about Media and Information Literacy, share ideas and experiences and develop their ideas for real projects that could make a difference!

Participants will “hack MIL” and come up with useful, practical and creative project ideas and concepts on MIL. Those with existing ideas can further develop their concepts and project plans to increase the chances of funding. The programme is being developed together with National Agencies, Erasmus+ advisors, Media and Information Literacy experts.

The goals of the Project Lab is to inspire each other, introduce what is MIL, showcase creative and interesting projects and to support and encourage the start of quality projects.

Why is Media and Information Literacy important?

EU Youth Strategy emphasises the need for equipping youth with digital skills and fostering critical thinking and media literacy. The strategy states that digital technologies have revolutionised young people’s lives in many ways and policies need to consider both opportunities and challenges, by tapping the potential of social media, equipping youth with digital skills and fostering critical thinking and media literacy.

With “Content marketing”, data related challenges, “fake news” and overflow of information, even media professionals struggle time after time with manipulation. Online media’s triumph has created a very quick flow of news and “click baits”. This is often overshadowing critical thinking, pluralism, balanced information and accuracy.

If educators and youth leaders wish to tackle these issues, they need training, support and tools to improve media literacy. It should begin first with the “multipliers” and then spread to children and young people. Most of all, there is no participation without information! The quality of information and skills to analyse also determine the quality of participation of citizens in decision making processes.

This is why a training programme for “multipliers” is needed. As a result, we hope to see more media related projects be promoted within Erasmus+ programme, which will also give tools and means to become more successful in communicating and promoting youth participation.

What we will do?

  • Discuss with experts and media professionals
  • Learn more about Media and Information
  • Brainstorm and develop project ideas and concepts
  • Get support and consultation for project planning, funding, communication, etc.
  • Learn about inspirational practices and meet other “doers” in the field
  • Get things going! This is your possibility to start your project and make critical thinking great again!

Reconnection focuses on how we can improve our performance in youth work by improving our non-verbal communication and performing skills.

General Description

Youth work is rewarding in many aspects. However, it requires hard work, commitment, creativity, and connection.

What we understand by ‘connection’ is your own connection with your body, mind, and language.

By being aware of the mutual interconnectedness of these three and striving for their harmony, you can improve what you do and how you do it.

Would you like to join us to explore this harmony and to reconnect?

Our project, “Reconnection: Physical theatre tools for youth workers” puts this on focus: how we can improve our performance in youth work by improving our non-verbal communication and performing skills. We are going to approach this through the tools of physical theatre.
