Computer systems and networks, Cyber security, database systems, human computer interaction, vision and graphics, numerical analysis, programming languages, software engineering, bioinformatics… the number of fields of new technologies is growing and becoming more specialised every day; indeed, the header image of this application has been generated with an AI tool.
It is easy to fall behind and not keep up with new changes. That’s why the aim of this series of Youth Europa projects is to provide participants with the latest knowledge and tools in new technologies – in this case, cybersecurity. During this training course, we will learn about cybersecurity from experienced security experts, discuss the hottest topics and create tools and knowledge that will be useful for other organisations.
More and more youth work is taking place online but security is usually kept on the backburner. Online security is often talked about on very basic level but it’s also needed to have more people with more in-depth knowledge of the subject. One of the goals of this project is to help participants to raise awareness about dangers in the virtual world.
Not only that, but this project can be the entry point to the world of cybersecurity, the knowledge gained and the contacts made during the activity can be the first steps to find a job in the world of IT security.
The project will bring together 17 people from Estonia, Greece and Spain; however, if you are a person from a neighbouring country and you are highly motivated, apply to this project and we will see how you can join. This will help us create a unique non-formal learning environment where you can comfortably share thoughts and ideas with other like-minded people. In addition to all of the learning activities, there will be other elements in the program that will help you make new friends and create memories for life. Come, take a leap of faith and experience something new. Many of the skills and contacts that are acquired during this event will be useful in other aspects of your life!
Please note that this is not a Youth Exchange but a Training Course. Training courses are more serious programs that are meant to improve the competencies of youth workers and people with strong interest in the topic. Despite the more serious nature of the event, it will still be a fun and ideal opportunity to meet new people.
