This project aims to train youth workers and leaders that work with young people, how to encourage their respective beneficiaries to interact more by creating and sharing digital stories, online campaigns or learning about e-Activism.
Everyone has a story to tell, and those digital stories are always very powerful, since in many cases they highlight very important issues, such as violence, discrimination or a struggle to find one’s place in the society. They also break down barriers as in our experience a unifying cause or message can often overcome ethnic or society divisions.
