As part of its efforts to spread awareness on the tools developed by the Digital Wellbeing project, EMG organized 3 professional events, in Berlin, Germany. The events were planned in advance and were announced through various channels such as direct mailers, invitations through Meetup and Linkedin groups. The participants were from the groups of VET Trainers, freelance Trainers, Training Managers and Students.
The first event followed a workshop structure in a training environment. 12 participants were introduced to the aims and outputs of the Digital Balance project, followed by inputs and feedback from the participants. The event was added further value by having a session on how phones outsmarts the users and leads to digital imbalance. The second and third events witnessed a total participation of 78 people. After the introduction of the outputs and seeking feedback, EMG also organized a session on Learning and focusing with a scattered mind, to raise further awareness on the topic of digital wellbeing. This was done to impart the participants with some techniques they can follow in day-to-day life, in addition to the tools of Digital Balance.
The casual atmosphere enabled free expression and participation of the attendees. The relevance and usefulness of the resources helped EMG in motivating the participants strongly to attend future events of EMG on similar topics or on topics pertaining to wellbeing and sustainability.
