ACTIon presents 2 new programs for youth

This week, two new educational programs for activating young people and enhancing their active civil and online participation were in the focus of our attention.

🟢  DigiPAC: Digital Participation and Active Citizenship is directed towards secondary school students and aims to develop their digital competencies, allowing them to use online instruments for active participation in the community. The program is developed by our German colleagues Nexus Institute for Cooperation Management and Interdisciplinary Research e.V,(neXus) and steps on a good practice of their work: the platform OPIN for online project planning and finding supporters in the work on ideas.

🟢  MOLA: A model for activation of leaders on societal opinion, which directed towards young adults. It aims at giving an opportunity to young people to express themselves as leaders on societal opinion by looking at important topics such as the critical and informed use of online information and its spread via a chain to their peers.

The partners in the project were introduced to the two methods and the recommendations for their implementation to work. On 27 January, at 4 p.m., on Facebook, the methods were also presented to a larger audience of colleagues and educators in Europe.

What follows from now on:

  • We are currently working on the creation of the fourth module of the app F.I.R.E., which will help the young people in their self-study and development in the topic of civil participation, medicine and health literacy offline. By the end of March 2022, we are planning on testing the module;
  • From April 2022 till May 2023, there will be organized trainings in the partner countries of Germany, Greece, North Macedonia, and Bulgaria. We will pilot the two programs in different environments;
  • We will gather and analyze interesting cases of the piloting process;
  • We will provide the results and all the materials to be used in the languages of our partners.
