Youth becoming digital citizens

One of the focus areas of the DigiGen project aims to address the following question: What are the socio-economic, gendered, and political culture-related issues influencing the digital political engagement of young people? The goals are first to research and analyse the context within which the political behaviour of young people is manifested online and secondly, to assess the extent to which it affects offline political practices. 

This report offers insights and comparative analysis of the stories young people produced during the digital storytelling workshops in the three countries. It showcases co-researching with 12 young people between the ages of 15-18, using the technique of digital storytelling workshops conducted between September 2021 and January 2022 in Estonia, Greece, and the United Kingdom: The aim was to compare the visual, discursive content produced by the participants and their interactions, on the topic of what inspires and challenges their civic participation when they use digital technologies.
