TC ”Digivocacy” – 03-09 April 2022, Genova, Italy

Dates: 03-09 April 2022

Place: Genova, Italy

About the project:

The constant and expanding digitalisation in the public arena, just as changes in innovation itself, showcases that several practices are getting quickly outdated. Youth workers need to consistently survey and grow new key strategies and measures to satisfy the new needs for digital education.Non-formal learning rehearses are no less influenced not just in light of the fact that innovation can affect the manner in which instruction is conveyed, yet in addition on the grounds that non-formal learning has a task to carry out in planning youngsters for a tech-driven world. Additionally, experiencing childhood in the digital age doesn’t make ‘advanced locals’, intrinsically skilled and sure with digital skills. Reviews demonstrate, that the use of internet is, as it were, confined to recreation time exercises, while commitment with innovation for instructive or cooperation purposes lingers behind.

Then again, the challenge isn’t just to guarantee that youngsters build up the advanced capabilities required, yet additionally to receive the rewards from the utilization of internet so as to encourage commitment in being dynamic residents in their networks, particularly that the lаck of youth commitment is still а significant issue аround Europe where weаk rаtes of youth participation in municipal and democrаtic forms аre evident. Moreover, their dissаtisfаction with conventionаl politicаl engаgement openings is generally recorded: they express generаl lack of engagement аnd suspicion. Along these lines, they displаy а low degree of politicаl pаrticipаtion, feel estrаnged from the politicаl framework аnd underrepresented inside the trаditionаl types of pаrticipаtion.

Therefore, #Digivocacy plans to step up the digital skills of youth workers by equipping them with innovative digital tools in order to raise young people’s participation. In order to answer to this goal, we’ll address the following objectives:

O1. Promote youth participation by updating the ladder-of online participation from E-Informing to E-Engaging.
O2. Assess the reasons of engagement or disengagement of young people with the democratic processes in the 9 participating countries.
O3. Empower youth workers with tools addressing digital inclusion of young people.
O4. Create digital guidelines for youth participation stakeholders, answering the objective O2.
