Children and young people, as creators and distributors of information in the digital environment, should be made aware of how to exercise their right to freedom of expression in the digital environment (Council of Europe, 2018)
During our youth workshops, we normally explore different elements of Digital Awareness/Digital Literacy. The topics may vary - from the way we interact with technologies on a daily basis to more nuanced information regarding online safety.
Although most of these cyber/digital terms might sound extremely boring, we make sure that our workshops are fun, experiential and memorable. Most of our youth-centered workshops are managed by Alicja, who has extensive experience of working with young people in informal and formal setting and is currently completing her doctoral project examining the social impact of digital youth participation in Scotland.
