Digital Detox

Training Course

21-25 November 2023 | Jurmala, Latvia

Training course "Digital Detox" comes as a response to what we see in youth work, more and more young people are spending their time online, it has its perks but often comes with costs related to mental well-being.

Digital transformation is one of the priorities identified by the European Union, with the result that digital transformation is increasingly included in the various projects, training activities and other support measures implemented under the Erasmus Unions Erasmus + programme.

It is crucial to develop the overall digital competence of youth workers, as well as critical thinking and orientation in today's digital world, which is constantly changing and evolving. But with the development of the digital world, it's also important to look at ways to use the resources and opportunities so that they enrich us.

Along with the development of digitization, the total time spent on digital devices is also increasing, often reflected in feeling more disconnected, anxious, exhausted, and unable to focus and do everything as planned in day-to-day life.

Thus “Digital detox” course comes as a response to what we see in youth work, more and more young people are spending their time online, it has its perks but often comes with costs related to mental well-being. The main goal of this course is to explore ways to find and maintain a balance in living both in the offline and digital world, where we both can benefit from endless opportunities of digitalization without losing on what is inherently human- to connect and disconnect, rest, and engage our senses in the stories of the World.

This course will create space to explore:

  • The concept of Digital Detox and Digital Wellbeing
  • The role of technology in one's life.
  • The Benefits and the risks of technology
  • Some of technology's impact on mental health
  • A way to experience the benefits of an optimal tech-life balance: practice Digital Wellbeing in the training setup
  • Various practical tools and methods that support Digital Wellbeing in one's personal life and during youth work.

Target group: 20 youth workers, facilitators, mentors, and educators

The space: the course will be held in a Latvian seaside town with the idea of creating space for learning through connecting offline in nature walks, restful sauna talks, and meaningful sessions.

If you decide to apply, we expect you to be fully present during the course, so that you can immerse yourself in the experience of a digital detox as well as find ways to pass the inspiration, knowledge, and skills forward to the community you work with.
