​​SomeCamp EU is a training event for youth workers from all types of organisations, on all levels, all over Europe.

The concept is based on Verke's national SomeCamp event that has been running since 2015. We have now joined the forces and energy from Verke and Estonian Youth Work Centre to open the opportunity to participate in a practice oriented training for youth work colleagues on international level.

Let’s take a step further to discover the world of smart youth work, with a focus on digital youth work*. What’s there already? What are the learnings from practices so far? What else would be needed now? How to nudge further developments? We aim to get to know the colleagues and practices from different countries, inspire ourselves with inputs and thematic workshops & will then launch a hands-on innovation lab in order to further enrich the digital youth work practices.

Through the event we are aiming to create an inspiring environment for learning, sharing and co-creation.

In order to do so, the programme will combine expert inputs with active contribution from participating colleagues in thematic workshops run by participants themselves and an innovation lab.
We hope that the programme can discover the world of smart youth work, with a focus on digital youth work, as diverse as it exists. To achieve this, we hope to see as many proposals for workshops by participants as possible!

Maybe you have developed a method, a tool or a material and would be excited to share it more broadly? Maybe you have an idea or prototype and could run a workshop to test it with colleagues and get some valuable inputs for further development? Or is there an issue, a burning question in your practice that you could raise and invite a small group of colleagues to think along with you?

Your workshop can tell about a success story or valuable experience of failure. Something to do with digital competencies, datafication, maker activities, gaming, AR/VR, artificial intelligence… It is indeed as open as it sounds, as far as it is relevant for the digital perspectives of youth work. We hope to see many workshops where participants can try out methods and tools in practice, so the more practical workshop you are proposing, the better chances you will have to run it. So please do not hesitate to propose your workshop and contribute to mutual learning and sharing!**

Working language of SomeCamp EU is English.

We will be able to host 40 participants and will confirm the participants the latest on 14th of October.

* Smart youth work is an innovative development of youth work, encompassing the digital youth work practice as well as including a research, quality and policy component (Council Conclusions on Smart Youth Work, 2017).
​Digital youth work means proactively using and/or addressing digital media and technology in youth work practice as a tool, an activity and/or as content (European Guidelines for Digital Youth Work, 2019).
