Start date: Jan 1, 2015, End date: Jun 30, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The training course was developed as a need to open discussion about digital violence and to raise awareness among young people. Young people are present on social networks without knowing how to behave, what details about life they can share and with whom they can hang. With this training course we opened the topic, gave skills and knowledge to youth workers or leaders how to prevent young people from digital violence and how to raise awareness in their local community about this issue. It was a 5 days training course that gathered 30 youth workers and leaders from Europe. The main aim of the training was to gain skills and knowledge how to prevent young people from digital violence. The training was from the 23 rd of March till the 29th of March in Belgrade, Serbia. Countries that participated in project are: Croatia, Montenegro, Bulgaria, Azerbaijan, Albania, Russia, Romania, Lithuania, Turkey, Estonia, FYRO Macedonia, UK, Norway, Germany and Serbia. Methodology used in the training was based on non formal education. We believe that non formal methodologies will get people more interactive and give them space to express themselves. The variety of methods have been used such as team work, individual work, team building games, energizers, exercise, fish bowl, presentation and open discussions. Participants also could propose some activity if they think that can improve the joint work. Video as a way of rising awareness on digital violence was present to the participants and all of them were directly involved by making a short video during the training. Results that we wanted to reach and that have firstly impact on participants and their local communities were to raise awareness about digital violence and how to safe themselves. There will be 15 follow up-events in each organization. That will bring project to the communities and also involve community in first informing and then acting with the topic digital violence. On the international level with this training we fostered cooperation and brought an European dimension in a non EU country. 30 participants gained skills and knowledge how to work with young people under the topic digital violence and sent a message by video to the rest of Europe about what is digital violence and how to prevent.
