The participating organisations are working with young people with fewer opportunities, young refugees/migrants and often acting in underprivileged socio-economical regions.
Therefore, their youth workers are looking for such tools which are attractive, easily available and understandable for their target groups. Nowadays, the majority of young people own a camera-equipped smartphone, even the ones in underprivileged situation and regions. Though, these gadgets have not been fully appreciated and used in youth work yet. Participatory photography is a method, though which young people would be able to raise awareness about important topics in their lives and address social issues which are important for youth.
Young people will be empowered to step up for their own peers and local communities and share their thoughts online, most probably via social media.
Participants will have the possibility to learn about photo techniques with their own smartphones and about the steps of participatory photography. Besides, they will also share their professional and personal experiences of approaching young people in a successful manner.
The project will offer space for networking between the participating organizations which will lead to the development of future youth projects between the participants and their sending organisations. .
