In this episode, we travel to Madeira’s island to explore a new and exciting project: the Digital Nomad Village. We talked to Gonçalo Hall – the founder of the project – who had the project’s idea while on an Erasmus+ project in Italy.
Gonçalo discovered digital nomadism six years ago, fell in love with remote work and became a remote work consultant. He also hosts a podcast called Remote Work Movement and started a few businesses around remote work.
Digital nomadism allows global communities to have a positive local impact. When people travel to stay and work in various local communities, they bring their experiences and connections to where they decide to live. This can help rehabilitate abandoned rural areas or revive local economies in regions most affected by the pandemic crisis.
We talked about the future of work and what skills young people need to acquire to adapt to new work forms. Gonçalo believes that writing will be an essential skill to thrive in the future because of the communication implications between people who don’t share the same workplace anymore, but also intercultural skills, emotional skills and self-management become more and more valuable.
We hope that you can take many good insights from this episode. Let’s Talk Youth Work.
