Youth can use online activism to contribute directly and indirectly to their local community and wider, by promoting and advocating ideas and activities that will have a positive outcome. In order to introduce youth more closely to the tools they can use on the Internet, a Facebook page Online Activism was initiated. How to use FACEBOOK, TWITTER, VIDEO, CROWDMAPPING or PHOTOS? Can a single person initiate changes?
Online activism is a method of using new communication technologies for different forms of activism in order to ensure easier and faster communication amongst citizens (activists and those who are not) and to transmit the message of activism to a wider audience. On the Online Activism page you can share your experiences. Be the change you wish to see. Also, by following the page you can stay informed about UMiD (Learn, Think and Act) online training and learn all about tools for online activism.
“The aim was to show to youth that they, as individuals, can change the society. All great changes were once small and were started by a single person, a single idea. Through our website we will educate youth about online tools and through info-charts from the “Online Activism for Beginners” brochure. Also, we will inform them about the UMiD online training. Most importantly, we will provide space and opportunity to youth for public and open discussion of the changes they wish to bring and the manners in which they wish to accomplish them” â€“ says Mirela Ajanovi? from the Institute for Youth Developemnt KULT. She adds that everyone is welcome to follow and publish on this website.
