„Participation goes hand in hand with providing young people with information.“
(White Paper “A new impetus for European youth”).
The “Youth Information 2.0” conference offers a European platform for the exchange of European Youth Information in the context of online-services and national youth portals. The spreading of information over all information-channels has to be advanced and promoted, in particular over these channels that are mostly used by young people. The possibilities offered by Web 2.0 are more and more taken up from young people and offer very good possibilities for participation in information brokering. How can we best link Web 2.0 and youth information? This will be the topic of “Youth Information 2.0”. Elements of Web 2.0 will be presented. The participants will discuss with experts background, challenges and possibilities of bringing together the two issues. That way national youth portals can develop into participative information portals for young people created by young people.
