Organisations

Youth use digital media such as, phones/tablets or the internet every day. They can learn a lot from this and connect easily, but there are also disadvantages to using digital media technology. Within the Movez Network, we study together with youth how to empower them to become smart, healthy and happy media users. We aim to make a contribution to society together with youth.

Potentially we can collaborate, exchange information or simply have a conversation, please contact us. Read more about our projects on (social) media use and well-being of youth below.

 

Media literacy: how do we become more aware of how we deal with media?

What does youth's increasing media use mean for their well-being? What positive effects can this media use have? And how do we combat the digital divide? The Movez Lab and Netwerk Mediawijsheid are working together on these themes, towards a media-literate Dutch population. Read more about it here!

Why we need art to co-create the societal impact of AI

The Erasmus University Rotterdam has established the Erasmus AiPact, a collaboration between science and society to fully leverage the potential of AI and minimize the risks. Art is crucial in this collaboration because it helps us imagine the future, gives us purpose and has potential for socially relevant goals.
