European society is progressively incorporating digital devices in all areas of life, which is leading to the spread of pathological internet use. With the development of non-formal tools that support youth workers in the promotion of digital competencies the idea is to make young people aware of the potential dangers of mag excessive use of digital devices, and how incorporating physically active and expressive activities in their routines can reduce their screen time and benefit their mental health and overall wellbeing.

It’s often called ‘The City of the sun’, thanks to the large number of sunny days all year round. The centre of Herceg Novi is its Old Town (Stari Grad), decorated with buildings dating back to the epochs of Sahat – Kula (1667) and Kanli – Kula (1483).
