Digital, Cultural, European Heritage for the Future Vision


Dates: 20.11.2023 – 27.11.2023
Location: Kemer, Antalya, Turkey
Number of participants: 32
Type of the project: Mobility of Youth Workers


Digital technologies are so pervasive all over the world that digital culture work potentially encompasses all aspects of daily life in youth work and this youth work is only expanded by the internet or modern communication technologies. Digital technologies have led partner organizations and all youth organizations towards more networked, collaborative and participatory forms of culture in youth work. In this context, the Digital, Cultural , European Heritage for the Future Vision (Digital VISION) project will try to explain certain features of digital culture in partner organizations and among youth workers. The types of technical processes involved, the types of cultural forms that emerge, and the approaches required by digital culture will be explained by the different types of experience in the project and the experiences of partner organizations. The project aims to provide an understanding of digital culture by looking at it from the perspective of a common resource for the information society and as a new social ecology that conditions the experiences and opportunities of youth workers today, which also brings about different threats in youth work. Digital Culture will also bring contributions that analyze how the cultural policies of partner countries deal with new virtual structures such as digital culture and cultural spaces, and look at the problems arising from the new relationships between real and virtual spaces.

Turkey, a country that occupies a unique geographic position, lying partly in Asia and partly in Europe. Throughout its history, it has acted as both a barrier and a bridge between the two continents. Turkey is larger than some European travel countries such as Italy, France, Germany, and the UK. Turkey offers a wealth of destination varieties to travelers: from dome-and-minaret filled skyline of Istanbul to Roman ruins along the western and southern coasts, from heavily indented coastline against a mountainous backdrop of Lycia and wide and sunny beaches of Pamphylia to cold and snowy mountains of the East, from crazy “foam parties” of Bodrum to Middle Eastern-flavoured cities of Southeastern Anatolia, from verdant misty mountains of Eastern Black Sea to wide steppe landscapes of Central Anatolia, there is something for everyone’s taste.


The westerly region of Turkey’s Mediterranean coastline is especially popular. There are abundance of beach kinds such as Rocky, sandy beaches as well as pebbly beaches especially around the Konyaalti Bay. With a particularly diverse landscape, it is actually quite feasible to enjoy a morning swim, and then head to the Taurus Mountains for a spot of skiing in the afternoon at the neighbouring resort of Davras. Antalya’s historical Old Town area known as Kaleici. It offers beautiful harbour views and is surrounded by medieval fortified walls, which date back before both the Roman and Byzantine periods and have been restored many times. Currently it is the fastest growing city in Turkey. Besides, Antalya enjoys an idyllic climate for a good deal of the year and much tourism.

Weather: The climate in Antalya is warm and temperate. The winter months are also sunny most of the time. However, it is also rainy and the rains are so dense in winter times.

Health & safety: Tap water is drinkable. Besides, Antalya is very safe to visit, with a low crime rate and and high safe index.

During a special evening, we will share characteristics from our culture. We ask you to bring foods and alcoholic/non-alcoholic drinks and magnets to share! You can also think of some other things to share with the group from your culture: stories, dances/songs, etc. Please do not make only PowerPoint presentations or country promotion videos, as it would be best if you can share something in your own words and with physical examples if you can. By the way, presenting something from your culture does not mean it has to be something about only the country itself: it can also be from a specific region or a city, etc. As we are trying to collect special and different magnets from each city and country to make an international wall we would like to have one magnet from your hometown as well. We would like to see your impact on our organization to remember you through your magnet.
