Description of the conference

Internet and digital media have changed young people lifestyle and their participation on civic life.

The aim of the conference is to analyse various forms of engagement, in inter-generational contexts and family settings, of youth and  also older adults with digital technologies and how they relate to various forms of social and cultural capital. During the conference obstacles and difficulties of this new digital media will be analysed with attention.
