Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for participants for a Youth Exchange called “Democratization by Digitalization” which will take place from the 30th of April until the 7th of May 2023 in Paikuse (Pärnu), Estonia.
The project “Democratization by Digitalization” is a youth exchange program that will bring together 33 young people from Turkey, Estonia, North Macedonia and Lithuania in Estonia and aims to change the outlook on democracy by teaching the importance of obtaining accurate information and active participation through digital means. Our goal is to raise conscious individuals and promote a more democratic society.
The growth of digitalization has led to a spread of information, much of which is manipulative. Generation Z, exposed to this digital world, is negatively impacted and needs education against manipulation to participate in democratic life. The project also aims to gather diverse perspectives on the connection between politics and social media, to increase transparency in this relationship.
The working language of this project is English.
Participants are expected to be residents in Estonia, between 18-30 y.o. and be open to innovations, give importance to personal development, have strong communication skills, and to be willing to learn.
The Erasmus + Programme will cover 100% of the accommodation, food and activities and will reimburse 100% of the travel costs for the participants – up to 180 EUR. There are 6 vacancies available. There will be a participation fee of 20 EUR per participant.
All the interested people should fill the application form below.
Application deadline: 9th April 2023
