Project description:
The project will bring together youth workers, educators and teachers to live and work under common roof. The participants will use creativity and innovation as a key competence for the personal and professional development. The digital storytelling is a concept that combines two crucial aspects – the power of creating personal narratives and our modern need to “go digital”.

The project will provide participants with knowledge about the digital storytelling method and its possible benefits for youth work, especially in the context of organising activities for young people at risk of exclusion;

The project will encourage participants to live creative and active life and use photography and short movie as tool to present their ideas.

The youth workers, educators and teachers will learn and share the information, good practices, tools and methods about inclusion and to play an active role to fight against bullying, violence, racism, discrimination , xenophobia in the own community.
