Deep uncertainty, and unforeseen consequences are characteristics inherent in today's world. In such a situation, values become a factor that determines one or another choice, which further affects direction of society. Every year humanity confronts "black swans", in particular the Covid-19 and the global upheavals caused by Russian invasion of Ukraine, which poses threat to the entire world democratic community.There is direct correlation between what values are cultivated in a society and how this society responds to unexpected crises. Moral values inform our social and economic goals and models, managerial actions, political decisions, personal choices and our justifications for them.
It is important to learn to conscious choice making in favor of those values that are aimed at building society and a common future. The youth is able to become drivers of change in society and ambassadors of values, it is important to strengthen their civic engagement and youth participation. In digitalization era, most effective tool for creating, promoting and integrating values are social networks, which are main platform for young people to communicate. A considerable majority of EU level NGOs and youth networks considered that their digital / social media presence was quite or very important to sourcing youth representation at a national level (85%). It is the opinion of youth leaders, that young people is guided by when making choices based on certain values. Also, agents of influence are youth organizations, which through digitalization can not only convey certain values to a wider number of young people, but also are able to build networking, based on certain values, which promotes sustainability and inclusion.
The Well&Values project aim is to develop the ability of youth leaders and organizations to use social networks creatively for effective promotion of common values as well as strengthening civic engagement and youth participation.
