R_U_Online? is a seminar that brings together teams of youth workers and young people who are interested in learning more about the internet, good online practices and ways to combine online and offline practices for positive change.
R_U_Online? Well, most of us are. But what are we doing in the internet? What do we use online services for, what do the others do? Are we using internet for business or pleasure? What are the things that we like and don't like about it? Internet is everywhere, it has revolutionised the world. It has helped big scale good and bad things happen around the world and given us more freedom and also more worries in our lives. The seminar gives an opportunity to understand ourselves better in terms of internet use. Maybe we can find ways of bringing the positive effects offline as well? Aim: To motivate young people and youth workers to get active on using internet for positive change in society Objectives: - To understand better the power of internet and how does it shape our lives - To reflect how internet reshapes concepts of safety, identity and friendship - To compare and learn about good online practices to promote positive change in society - To understand our roles in making positive influence using internet - To promote young people's active participation - To learn about the possibilities of Youth in Action Programme to make projects We look for teams of 1 adult with 1-2 young people (16-18 years of age) to join the international seminar and learn about online possibilities. You should be motivated to reflect on your use of internet and learn about the possibilities using online ideas offline. Participants form groups trying out their offline and online practices with the local people in the hosting town. We prefer teams of 1 adult and 1 young person.
