“Digital youth work – a Finnish perspective” is a collection of articles from 32 contributors from the vanguard of digital youth work in the Finnish youth work field. The examples provide insight on both the how and the why of digital youth work by showing glimpses of both the practical activities as well as organisational support and development strategies. This book is for everyone interested in youth work, and the effects technologisation has on it. While the examples contained within are by no means a comprehensive list of all possible digital youth work activities, they can provide an understanding of the versatility of digital youth work and act as an inspiration when enhancing your own digital approaches in youth work.
