This toolbox is a result of the useITsmartly project. It contains ideas on how to facilitate and encourage energy-efficient IT practices of adolescents through changes in knowledge, attitudes and practices in different target groups. In 19 workshops in 5 countries, 415 young people came up with 232 ideas about this topic. To ensure their technical and social feasibility, all ideas were discussed, rated, categorized and rewritten by experts (including youth) and consortium members into a total of 38 practical action oriented tools to change the environment.

 


These tools can be used by environmental organizations, youth, schools, companies or policy makers to improve IT practices of youth. As these tools build on ideas developed by the target group themselves, we expect them to be more effective than those that are developed top-down. The toolbox has been made searchable on various search grounds, to ensure their usability. It is meant as a practical instrument to inspire and encourage youth and other actors to take action towards using IT more smartly.
