Safety and Quality in Online Youth Information
Safety and Quality in Online Youth Information (SQOYI) is an ERYICA project that we were working on together with a number of experts from our network.
The project seeked to create and disseminate knowledge for Youth Information workers to empower young people to make good use of available online Youth Information resources.
The project delivered the following outcomes:
- An Info-KIT providing guidance to young people on how to find information on the Internet and on how to generate good content. The material also includes good practice and examples featuring innovative techniques.
- Quality principles for participative and user-generated online Youth Information were established and then promoted as an integral part of the “European Youth Information Charter”.
- The created material was directly used for a training of 30 trainers of Youth Information workers and two international workshops involving 50 young people, empowering them to enact efficient searching strategies also in user generated content environments besides a safe and proper use of internet.
The project ran until April 2011 and took place in different European venues.
