About the training course
The training course will build on previous work done by the Council of Europe in the area of Artificial Intelligence, and especially on the outcomes of the seminars organised by the Youth Department in 2019 and 2020.
The course will take place in the European Youth Centre in Budapest (EYCB) and last for 5 days (excluding travel days). Participants are expected to attend in person, subject to the evolution of the covid-related protocols on travel and meetings. The methodology will be based on non-formal education approaches and make use of participants experience. The course programme will particularly make use of the set of educational resources on AI literacy and of the handbook on youth participation in Internet governance.
The course will welcome participants with various expertise on the topic. Participants who have not worked with the topic of Artificial Intelligence/internet governance but are looking to build a competence in the area can also apply.
The course also contributes to the Youth Department campaign Democracy Here, Democracy Now that will run from March until October 2022 where one focus is the impact of digitalisation on democracy. The dissemination of tools for AI literacy can support engagement of more young people.
