IT’S YOU NET

IT'S YOU Net (IO1)

IT’S YOU Net is a European social network for the exchange of experiences, ideas, and reflections on intercultural citizenship issues. Its structure is composed of two areas one dedicated to Youth Workers (professionals and/or volunteers) working in the field of citizenship and interculturality and wishing to activate an active confrontation and exchange of good practices on intercultural citizenship issues with other European operators; the second area is dedicated to the young people targeted by the project and promotes the exchange of experiences and good practices among young Europeans engaged in implementing and/or disseminating intercultural citizenship practices.

The competence areas that are being considered for development/enhancement/qualification in the target groups are as follows:

  • Multilingual competence meaning as linguistic and cultural inter-comprehension
  • Digital competence
  • Citizenship competence, i.e. the ability to act as responsible citizens and to participate fully in civic
  • Competence in cultural awareness and expression, which involves understanding and respecting how ideas and meanings are creatively expressed and communicated in different cultures and through a range of arts and other cultural forms.

The Youth Workers area is a free social networking web service mainly used to develop professional contacts between practitioners working in the field of citizenship and interculturalism. In this space YWs can:

  • Post photos and stories of their work experiences, either done or in progress. The publication can be followed by a communication/conversation with other YWs;
  • Chat with other youth workers (individually or in groups) through the platform’s online messaging system;
  • Create thematic discussion groups (whoever creates the group becomes the moderator);
  • Make proposals for future collaborations (notice board).

 

The area for Young People targeted by the project is a free social networking web service where young people create their own profile with some personal information including a description of their main activities of interest related to the topic of intercultural citizenship. In this space young people can:

  • Post photos and stories of their experiences related to the themes of intercultural citizenship;
  • Chat with other young people (individually or in groups);
  • Create thematic discussion groups (whoever creates the group becomes the moderator);
  • Post proposals for shared actions inspired by the themes of intercultural citizenship (notice board).
