Young people, youth researchers, youth policy makers on the concept of smart youth work, and the potential and dangers of digital developments for young people
A lot of discussion arose when the concept of smart youth work was introduced and promoted within Estonia’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union – and interpretations of the concept varied.
So, the Coyote team took the opportunity at the EU Youth Conference held in Tallinn in October 2017 to interview youth representatives, youth researchers and youth policy makers, asking them three questions related to this innovative concept.
What is smart youth work to you?
What is the potential of smart youth work?
What are the dangers of digital developments for young people?
Thanks again to all the interviewed experts for sharing their opinions with us!
