From new challenges to innovative contributions: using online tools to promote exchange and understanding

During the training, the attending youth workers will first learn what the root causes of prejudices are in our societies and analyze the situation in different countries. The next phase is about exploring and mastering online tools to promote an exchange of information between different people. One particular example will be given: publishing articles and matching photographs at ‘Humans of ...’ pages on Facebook and Instagram. The idea originates from the hugely successful ‘Human of New York’ page, which has gathered over 16 million likes on Facebook by now. It presents street portraits and interviews, collected on the streets of New York. With the initiative, the subscribers of the page can read short stories of people they would perhaps normally never speak to. It offers a unique insight into the lives of others, broadening your own viewpoint. The power of social media is that it can reach a lot of people quickly, and it offers an easy space for interaction afterwards aswell.
