Youth and Digitalisation, two key themes of the ALDA Festival and General Assembly!

May 15, 2023

Youth empowerment & Education

On the very first day of ALDA Festival and General Assembly, June 7, the Association’s Thematic Hub “Youth empowerment and education”, working on enhancing youth participation and on fostering education and learning opportunities for youngsters, will organise two captivating events in the framework of the TALE and the P-CUBE projects at Maison Hap, Brussels (Belgium). 

Within the TALE project, funded by the European Parliament and focused on the 2024 EU elections, and on young citizens and changemakers’ engagement, the TALE World Café will be held on June 7 at 2pm (CEST). 

Moderated by European Capital of Democracy, this event will represent the opportunity to share relevant information on the upcoming 2024 EU elections with stakeholders and citizens, raising awareness on the EU key priorities, values and institutions, and actively involving them in the democratic process.

Join us for the ALDA Festival and General Assembly to discuss important topics such as Youth and Digitalisation!

Thus, each cluster has produced a coherent and representative sheet to be submitted to key policymakers to ensure that the voice of CSOs is heated and taken into consideration for the elaboration of policies and plans.

In addition to this, ALDA’s Thematic Hub “Youth empowerment and education” will also conduct “Education becomes digital” – the international Final Conference of the P-CUBE project, which will take place on June 7 from 4pm to 5.30pm (CEST). 

This event will focus on digital education, with particular attention to 2023 as “European Year of Skills”, and to “digitalisation” as one of the pillars of the Erasmus+ programme. This topic will be introduced by Ms. Marta Markowska, Policy Officer for Digital Education in the Directorate-General for Education, Youth, Sport, and Culture (DG EAC) – European Commission. 

Afterwards, a roundtable discussion will present three concrete case studies from Longlife Learning Platform, ALL DIGITAL, Science for Democracy, and ALDA, related to digital skills, digital education and gaming, offering a specific focus on the P-CUBE game.
