Our main goal in this project is to measure the technology addiction levels of the young aged between 16 and 25 (physically disabled or socio-economically disadvantageous 12 young from Edirne, and 5 young people from each of our partners Lithuania, Poland, Italy, Romania, Greece and Bulgaria; totally 42), to raise their motivation about healthy life and socialization, to raise their awareness for decreasing their technology addiction level by bringing the young together with the experts and the academicians. In our project 12 lecturers (10 of them are volunteers) will serve in order to hold the project activities. We want to organize this project in order to draw attention to the technology addiction of the young, to support the teenagers in adopting healthy life styles and bring the young together to provoke them into participating in active life to raise their consciousness level and awareness.One of our project’s objective is to discuss the precautionary measures by means of workshops to prevent the high school and university students aged between 16 and 25 from having technology addiction which is spreading all over the world rapidly and regarded as the century’s problem in our country and in the world. Moreover, to help the youth struggle against health problems such as obesity, postural and perceptual disorder and to provide the young find solutions about technology addiction are our other objectives. We particularly want to discuss the precautionary measures for the technology addiction which harms the young’s physical, psychological, mental and social development irretrievably.We believe that we will lead our participants to respect differences, to gain awareness about social subjects and to discover new-cultures, new habits, and new life styles by means of peer learning. We think that in an environment where the participants will be supported to express themselves freely, the participants will feel themselves more self-confident and more enterprising. Also, we hope that among the participants the motivation to take place actively in future education will raise. We will cooperate with Trakya University, Yeşilay, Bilişim Hukuku Derneği (NGO), Siber Güvenlik Derneği (NGO), IT Technologies General Directorate of Ministry of National Education, Edirne Provincial Security Directorate, Chief Prosecutor’s Office, Edirne Public Health Office.The presentations, documents and videos during the work-shops, seminars or discussion sessions will be shared on the web-site and will be accessible free to the public. At the end of the project, a viral video will be recorded and broadcasted on the local/national media. In addition to all these, 40 participants will send letters or postcards to their friends or family from the post office, which will be a traditional experience for the participants. At the end of the project, addiction map of the young aged 16-25 will be ready, project brochure will be prepared and they will be shared with the schools in Edirne, all the Provincial Directorates of Education in Turkey, and the youth in our project partner’s countries.
