Digital tools and online campaigning for active participation in democratic processes

Training Course

4-14 January 2023 | Berlin, Germany

We will educate youth workers/teachers/educators on what digital tools and digital campaigns for democracy are, how to use them and how to develop local activities for youngsters on the topic of online campaigning.

The topic that we are focused on in this LTTA is Digital tools and online campaigning for active participation in democratic processes. It is not enough just to understand how political systems function, it is also relevant where and how youngsters inform themselves about the political system, and relevant and current issues that affect them and their community; as well as digital tools that can be used in the democratic processes.

On this LTTA youth workers/teachers/educators will firstly learn more about the current situation in partner countries when it comes to digital campaigns, how digital campaigns are developed and which tools are used, how to use different tools for developing online campaigns, and at the end how to develop local community level activities for educating young people on online campaigning for active participation in democratic processes. 

What will the TC look like?

The themes and objectives of this project will be put into practice through the following daily activities: Ice-breaking and getting to know each other; Regular energizers; Programme sessions; Intercultural evening/Optional evening sessions; Daily evaluation/reflection rounds. The whole concept of the LTTA is designed according to the mutual agreement of all partner organizations in the project. LTTA activity will be based on non-formal education and learning by doing methods. It will give participants the opportunity to create their own learning expectations and outcomes, but also to discover themselves and their own personal limits. General methods that we are planning to use are: working in smaller groups, interactive and creative presentations, brainstorming, working in national groups, simulation activities, role plays etc.

All participants will receive a Youthpass certificate.
