Digibox training in Trabzon, Turkey

Remember May? That is when we participated in the training course DIGIBOX – Enriching Youth Workers Digital Toolboxes for Involvement hosted by FuturEurope and our international network Shokkin Group International in Trabzon, Turkey!

The project gathered 30 youth workers and leaders from eight countries (Turkey, Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia, Spain, Croatia, Austria and Norway) to learn more about digital tools and opportunities and meet other youth workers to exchange experiences and knowledge. From Norway we sent two participants: Anna and Irfan, that both had a great experience with new and insightful learning.

Here are some thoguhts from our participant Anna Verhaar: 

A week full of new insights about the opportunities of digital tools in youth and social work. While we often think of the online world as an individual space, this training taught us the opposite can be true, if you know how to use it! Digital tools enable us to create, collect and share ideas in a split second, creating connections and enabling contact between large distances. Organizing and promoting youth empowerment for example through international activities like Youth Exchanges and Training Courses. The great trainers Pavel and Markus taught and encouraged us to use (new) digital tools in our work or studies in our daily lives. Skills we all benefit from now!
