Living in the “digital era” life is increasingly taking place online and social media platforms offer a great range of opportunities for online youth activism and engagement. Acknowledging the importance of social networks and online content for young people, there is a need to explore how social media can contribute to social inclusion and how young people can make use of this opportunity.
„Social Media for Social Inclusion“ prepares youth workers to introduce digital tools, social media and storytelling to their youth work practice; allows them to explore different minority groups and how one can employ social media and storytelling as leverage for their social inclusion; encourages them to share good practices of online social inclusion campaigns from their respective countries; and makes them fit to pass on digital literacy in usage of social media and storytelling for social inclusion to youngsters. 💻
