This week we were in Kaunas, Lithuania for the third EIRENE meeting. This project aims to improve the ability of the school education system to react to the bullying phenomenon and to involve the main actors that rotate around the school system in tackling this negative behaviour at an educational level.
From the 25th to the 29th of June 2019, we were in Lima, Peru for the LANGUP meeting. LANGUP is an Erasmus+ Capacity Building for Youth project which aims to promote the knowledge of local and minority languages and link them with the increase of the employability of the young people. The focus of the project is on the role of youth work to raise the awareness of these opportunities, to support the young people to valorise them and to support intergenerational learning which is a key factor in this process.
The Young Digital Leaders project has organised student workshops in four different schools in Greece. The aim of the workshops were to train the students to become more active digital citizens. More specifically, the workshops aimed to empower the children to identify fake news, echo chambers and filter bubbles, to recognise and counter stereotypes and hate speech online, to recognise their rights and obbligations online, to learn how they can deliver an online message in the most effective way and to take positive action for the improvement of their local community.
The last parents training workshop organised in the framework of the Young Digital Leaders project was organised in the 2nd High School of Gerakas which hosted also a students training workshop. The parents of the school had the chance to discuss the results of the project and be informed on issues related with digital citizenship.
The last teacher training workshop organised in the framework of the Young Digital Leaders project was organised in Mytilene, in the island of Lesvos.
