Join our team of e-Experts!


E-Participation is the topic highlighted by IYNF in 2016. Due to our latest practices on online communication technologies (e.g. webinars, e-volunteering, social media strategy, ECOmaps), we believe that these tools can be extremely beneficial, contributing to the visibility and mission of youth organizations. However, IYNF wants to promote and also encourage the use of online platforms as new participatory tools for youth, providing new opportunities of engagement on civil society.

To cement this goal, IYNF found it essential to create a team of experts on E-Participation, who are expected to work with us on the topic, under our values and framework. We require some knowledge on online participation and social media, although motivation is the most important factor, as IYNF will provide input during our upcoming events. You can read more about the objectives, tasks and benefits of an IYNF e-expert on our website. How to join? The first step is to apply to “How e-mazing is your organization” and let us know of your particular interest in the application form. For more info please contact
