During 26th and 28th of June 2018, Social DOers team was happy to join Connecting the Dots Symposium: Young People, Social Inclusion and Digitalisation, organised by the EU-CoE youth partnership.
The Symposium offered us the opportunity to deliver one of the guest speeches on “Building Resilience in the Digital Age” – literally connecting the dots between the opportunities brought by new technologies and the situation of young people in NEET situations. Moreover, highlighted the interest of the European NEET Coalition in investing more resources in gathering best practices concerning digital tools that support the social and economic development of young people in NEET situations or in risk situations, as well as to extend our interest in working with other partners and stakeholders in developing joint projects that prepare the youngest generation for our digital future.
The full presentation delivered by our President & co-founder, Veronica STEFAN can be found here: https://prezi.com/p/lz0tzkfnjbiu/.
The Symposium brought together more than 100 policy makers, researchers, practitioners from youth NGOs and youth work, as well as actors from the digital field, particularly looking at how digitalisation affects young people’s lives, and what the role of youth policy, youth work and youth research can be in this respect.
The Symposium also marked the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the EU-CoE youth partnership, a structure that successfully supports developments in the youth sector and generates necessary knowledge in the field.
