This report has been developed as part of the Strategic National Agency Cooperation (SNAC) on Digital Youth Work (DYW), which improves and develops digital youth work across Europe. The importance of digital competencies has been magnified in current times. Life is fundamentally digital for many young people, while some are on the other side of the digital divide. However, digital youth work has a lot to offer for all. Digitality is a convenient tool, an appealing activity and essential content in youth work. Digital Youth Work is a long-term project of the National Agencies of Erasmus+ Youth and the European Solidarity Corps. The project is a part of the continuing development of digital youth work in Europe, and it builds on the Council Conclusions on Digital Youth Work (2019). The project website and European Reports on the Strategic National Agency Cooperation are available here:
