Background of the training:

SALTO Participation & Information Resource Centre (SALTO PI), SALTO Inclusion & Diversity Resource Centre (SALTO I&D) and 10 National Agencies, with SALTO Eastern Europe and Caucasus (SALTO EECA) onboard joined to address the topic of inclusive and participatory digital transformation to encourage the transformation of online and offline spaces. In the European youth field, digital transformation is understood as a multi-stakeholder and inclusive process encompassing the co-design, implementation and utilisation of people-centred digital technologies with and by young people, youth workers and other relevant stakeholders. Digital transformation changes the way most areas of the youth field operate. It describes the evolving integration of digital technologies into social, economic, and cultural processes and structures.

The framework of the digital transformation in EU Youth field was mapped in the study, coordinated by SALTO PI and are: 

  • Multistakeholderism and participation 
  • Skills and education 
  • Access and infrastructure 
  • Strategy
  • Innovation
  • Sustainability 
  • Ethics
  • Digital well-being

During the training, we would like to address the topic from a variety of perspectives and narratives, such as emerging technologies, digital rights, digital sustainability, digital youth participation, digital policy making, digital education, cross-sectoral approaches. 

The important thing to be mindful about before applying is the commitment to the whole process, so that 7 months from October on, will really be dedicated to transforming the online and offline digital spaces and tackle the different perspectives in order to integrate it in your work.
