Summary what was youth exchange about:

Everything we do on Internet leaves marks, a digital trail that we are not always aware of. Many users are surprised when after a search for a flight they begin to receive travel advertising through banners or search engine suggestions, although that is the least invasive part of all.

 

In fact, every movement we make on Internet, whether direct or indirect, leaves a mark. From the search in a browser, the use of an application, or even the active carrying of the GPS, bluetooth or wifi on a mobile device. We leave data of our life in each publication that we do in social networks. Our geolocation is collected by using certain services, or certain devices (cell phones, tablets or watches). Our tastes and preferences are obtained from our searches on the internet, and from the pages and services we use.Each click is a data, and in this era, the data is the oil that moves the markets: important to determine how a person relates, their comments and even evidence of their cyber crimes. As much as we want to be anonymous on the web, we leave traces. And some more than others, but always something is left behind. Many think that after a certain time, comments, photographs or videos are lost in oblivion. On the other hand, it is not like that; everything we have done on the Internet.

Through this exchange 33 people, from 6 countries such as Spain, Slovakia, The Netherlands, Greece, Romania and Estonia, participated and tried to decipher that is the digital trail. The best way is being aware that there is a fingerprint, and getting down to work, knowing what there is on the internet about us (egosurfing), deleting or requesting the elimination of what we consider no more appropriate (right to forget / cancel data), and avoiding future dangers by configuring the privacy of devices, browsers, applications and social networks that we use; moreover, it could be also possible by limiting the installation of cookies and similar services, blocking the location of the GPS or bluetooth when they are not necessary, avoiding suspicious web pages, being very cautious with every movement that we make in the network can be part of invasive system.

Our Youth Exchange was based on non-formal education. It means that the learning process was based on our experience, our motivation and our needs. During the exchange, non-formal education methods assured a balance between theory and practice: it was used interactive dynamics such as presentations, group works, workshops, games, role plays, exercises, etc…

Youth exchange was for participants between 18 – 30 years old. Participants were from Spain , Estonia , Greece , Romania , Netherlands and Slovakia . There were 5 participants from each country.
