The study Practices of digitally mediated youth engagement in cultural institutions during the pandemic examines the crossroad of the youth, the pandemic and GLAMs. It aims to support the dialogue of cultural heritage institutions in their attempt to face Covid19-related challenges by better engaging youth in their outreach activities. Grounded on European and international initiatives for the benefit of GLAMs, the report serves to create a collection of practices of digitally mediated youth engagement developed by European GLAMs during the pandemic. 15 concrete examples of youth engagement in the ordinary activities of GLAMs are showcased in the publication while advice on means to engage youth are given by experienced staff of the selected practices.

During the autumn, The GLAMers are organising a series of interactive online sessions to support and advise European GLAMs in building better connections with youth audiences during the pandemic. The sessions are led by Web2Learn and organised with the support of Europeana.
