15 Episodes on Digital Youth Work and Innovative Tools

In 15 episodes the podcast will concentrate on presenting digital youth work and social innovative tools by discussing with relevant stakeholders and practitioners who are innovating tools by using disruptive solutions based on cyber, cooperative and cross-sectorial tools with the young people.

Podcasts are gaining more and more audience due to its accessibility. People take podcasts with them to the sports and leisure activities or listen them during driving a car. Podcasts present a very cost-efficient dissemination for the project and the results can easily be shared in social networks.

Future Labs project partners have agreed that the podcast will also be used in the training of future youth workers in university as well as in other non formal learning contexts for practitioners organised by the partner organisations, reaching easily an audience of 300 listeners per episode.

Need for Online Space for Innocation in Youth Work

In Europe, at this moment, there is not an online space dedicated to Innovation in Youth Work. The podcast that will be created during Future Labs can be a way to start to create this space and a door for possible follow-up online activities.

Podcasts are produced by the experienced podcasters of Team Mais and the publication is done together with the editorial board consisting representants from Humak University of Applied Sciences.

The 15 episodes will be published in monthly basis through these pages.
