HESED participated in the event аs part of the ACTion project, with presentation of the piloting experience with the two analogue training programs DigiPAC and MOLA from the perspective of the young people who participated in the piloting in Bulgaria.
We performed a workshop: MOLA and Youth Community’ Activation Potential: Set Me on F.I.R.E. We presented with excitement the digital adaptation of the two analogue training programs DigiPAC and MOLA – the mobile application F.I.R.E. app , suitable for individual online training for young people, developed by Open Space Foundation. We also discussed with the participants our vision for smart youth work and the opportunities for applying digital technologies in youth work with vulnerable groups.
The Action workshop also included interactive presentations on the topics of Netiquette and digital citizenship, as well as structured discussion on policy recommendations for policymakers on digital participation and digital citizenship of young people from vulnerable groups in Europe.
Europe’s digital future was revealed in September in Zagreb, we are glad that HESED and the young people we work with are part of it.
