Generation Z Reading Club

Generation Z Reading Club

Young people today read less frequently than any previous generation and enjoy reading less than young people did in the past. At the same time, every two days now the human race creates as much information as we did from the dawn of civilisation until 2003. Nowadays, the spaces with the widest civil participation are found online, including social networks, video games, and other internet platforms. Therefore, if we want young people to be active, empowered and informed citizens, the presentation and communication of common strategic priorities asking for comprehensive social engagement also need to change. On the other hand, the workplaces of today require reading and understanding tons of information online, reporting through apps, applying specific software, etc. Therefore, in order for young people to enhance their employability in Europe, acquiring the right set of literacy skills is fundamental.

Our “Reading Club” project promotes and boosts reading among young people by developing, testing and launching a virtual Reading Club App, in combination with respective Guidelines on how to use and implement these, dedicated to youth Workers and stakeholders in education.
