The Internet became the core of social life with social media. We trust in the positive energy and influence of social work to guide children and young people at risk safely through the challenges and support them to benefit from the great advantages of social media.

Dear Readers,
on April 8th 2014 about one hundred international stakeholders from the area of children and youths work have attended the project’s final conference in Berlin to discuss how the influence of social work can be used to ensure the online safety of children and youths at risk. During the event, the findings of the project were presented and discussed with the high-ranking members of the international Advisory Board of SocialWeb - SocialWork. In the afternoon, the interactive working format of the Appreciative Inquiry Approach offered all participants the opportunity to get directly into contact with each other and exchange experiences and opinions beyond national and professional borders. Enjoy reading our report on the Future Summit SocialWeb - SocialWork.

The presentation of the project’s findings on the final conference gave an insight into the evaluation activities of the project: the quantitative survey waves and the accompanying qualitative focus group interviews with trainees and managerial staff of social work institutions. The project's evaluation activities focus on the short-term and long-term effects the training and the online-learning units have on the daily working routines of the target group and will draw conclusions about the transferability and scalability of the project's training approach to other groups of professionals and in other European countries.

With regard to the final project phase and beyond, the project’s evaluation results will be prepared for further dissemination to the interested public, aiming at a broader implementation of the project's training approach in other European countries. We are looking forward to announce soon the availability of the final findings of the project evaluation as well as the material and online units developed during the training campaign in six European languages on the project website.

Carolin Bretl,
project manager
