CALL FOR ITALIAN PARTICIPANTS
ERASMUS+ YOUTH EXCHANGE: " Plug to the Participation "
ABOUT THE PROJECT: We are currently moving in a society that has changed the ways of relating them socially, especially among young people. We have expanded the number of relationships, shortened distances, reduced face-to-face relationships. Social networks present dangers and opportunities, we should take the possibilities and minimize risks. At the same time we should encourage to close personal relationships. Internet is a formidable tool to work on multilingualism and interculturality, mutual knowledge but also facilitates the distribution of hate messages, threats, bullying due to impersonality and the assumption of virtual personalities
Through this project young people from 5 different nationalities, 6 young people from 17 to 25 years old and a leader per country will share during 6 days (plus 2 trips) activities that allow them to analyze the threats and opportunities offered by the use of Internet confronting it with forms of closer and direct communication. We want they learn to differentiate inappropriate uses of networks (bullying, hate messages ...) and do not use it in this way. We also want they fight it that they become activists, in this way they will contribute to expand the tools acquired during the project
