The ARWIJOC project on young people, religion and digital tools is presented in Rome

Posted on

Alba Sabaté, member of the Blanquerna Observatory, presented the ARWIJOC project on young people, religion and digital tools at the 10th Professional Seminar for Church Communication Offices, organised by the Pontifical University of Santa Croce in Rome on 26, 27 and 28 April.

Sabaté presented the first conclusions of a study whose main objective was to find out how young Catalans use digital tools on religious issues. Apps, online communities, web portals and even games related to the 13 religions present in Catalonia are just some of the results obtained. The research was carried out both in person and digitally, with the participation of institutes, schools, leisure centres and religious communities in every corner of the country, except for the city of Barcelona, which was not one of the project’s goals. During the meeting in Rome, ARWIJOC stimulated interest and debate among communicators and experts from all over the world. The project is led by the Observatory and supported by the General Direction of Religious Affairs (DGAR).
