Aims & objectives

The main aim of the training was increasing the capacities of young people to advocate for commons.

In order to realize this aim, the training focused on four main objectives:
1) equpping the youth workers, activists and NGO workers with the knowledge about what commons are, and in particular what digital commons are,

2) promoting the understanding of the relation between digital commons and youth participation by learning from concrete examples of young people's struggles to influence decision making related to digital rights,

3) raising awareness about the importance of free and accessible internet as a prerequisite for access to information, organising, and equal participation of all young people,

4) equipping the participants and their organisations in new tools and strategies of digital advocacy in particular adapted to the struggle for commons.

The Training “Common Digital (R)evolution” was the third activity of FYEG’s Annual Work Plan No Commons No Future! supported by the European Youth Foundation of Council of Europe and the Green European Foundation.

Testimonial of the reference person

Weronika is one of the most thoughtful, passionate, meticulous, caring, and intellectual colleagues I've ever had the pleasure to work with. That specific training had many challenges, many of which I am certain we would not have been able to overcome without her wisdom and patience. She was instrumental in co-designing the sessions I led on, and I simply love working with her. I look forward to being able to collaborate with her again, and highly recommend her as a trainer.
