The Networking Tool is one of the resources offered through the YCreate Peer Mentoring Community Action Toolkit. It makes uses of digital technology to facilitate cooperation between YCreate teams across the EU, and between YCreate teams and their communities helping in identifying, listing and categorising stakeholders in youth participation.
The Networking Tool is a repository of contacts that can enhance collaboratively efforts in counteracting hate speech, behaviour and misinformation through artistic, creative, cultural and digital practices to bring about positive change in the community, promote active citizenship, social cohesion and inclusion driven by youth.
