Empowering generation next: Toward smart, healthy, and happy media users

Can everyday media use help young people live a healthy and happy life, now and in the future? How can the use of media help us take care of ourselves, others, future generations and the planet? Leading with these questions, we investigate the value of digital media technology.

Our research projects

In our research group, there are different projects. In the SocialMovez project, we aim to stimulate positive behaviour of young people using their online social networks. For this, we use innovative data-analytic technologies, while maintaining privacy and ownership of their data. Second is the MediaMovez project where we investigate how young people can be empowered to use digital media in a safe and responsible manner (e.g., through media-education in schools).
