At the end of the trainings, the participants completed the questionnaire. They gave only positive feedback about the organization and conducting of trainings.

The Summer School contributes to employment of youth, as programming skills would enhance their ability to make informed choices and empower them to gain access labor markets, as well as support post UNESCO conference advocacy on Youth and Internet Fighting Radicalization and Extremism.

Young people today face pressing global challenges, including high levels of unemployment, vulnerable working conditions and marginalization from decision-making processes.
