DigitalYOu Hackathon was held in Belgrade between 11 and 15 December 2022. The event gathered young creative and tech-savvy people from several European countries in order to enable them to work with experts and mentors on developing an innovative and interactive web platform for supporting the digital work of non-governmental organizations.
The participants were divided into three groups based on their interests and expertise – Engage, Empower and Connect, with each group corresponding to one of the platform’s key functions. These teams have engaged in collaborative NFE activities for three days and together with experts who were there to support them have created innovative solutions for the DigitalYOu platform and digital youth work in general. These valuable inputs and solutions will be used to finalize and optimize the platform, making it more intuitive, richer in features, and more user-friendly.
The project “DigitalYOu” is co-funded by the European Union and implemented by an international consortium of organizations from 5 countries led by CONNECT International, with the main goal of empowering youth organizations across Europe to meet the needs of the digital shift of youth work by increasing their capacities, providing knowledge and creating innovative digital tools.
