Digital Welcome project consortium invite you to the Final Event of the DIGITAL WELCOME Project

Offering a digital welcome is the essence of the ‘Digital Welcome’ methodology. In five European countries young refugees and migrants learned to facilitate IT workshops on basic programming, digital storytelling, digital journalism and a whole arsenal of soft skills aimed at communication and animating workshops. An excellent opportunity to practice the local language, improve digital skills, and get to know new people.

You will have the opportunity to test our methodology and IT-workshops for young refugees and newcomers. The methodology document has been published on this website and it will be presented at the event!
