New Fellowship-Program “Digital Europe”
Empowering young European educators to promote democratic values in digital spaces.
In cooperation with Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft, the Schwarzkopf Foundation Young Europe is awarding four fellowships across Europe for the first time. The program is aimed at young European educators between the ages of 18 and 27 who want to explore the topic of the (European) digital public sphere, and to professionalize their commitment to low-threshold and diversity-oriented educational work.
Over a period of six months (April to September 2021), the fellows are given the possibility and support to develop their own 45- to 90-minute workshops for students aged 13 and older, aiming to strengthen their (digital) democratic competence. The workshops are meant to create a space in which Fellows and students can together address topics such as democratic participation in the digital space, the representation of marginalized groups through digitization, or the role of social media and social movements in a digital Europe.
