Main Idea of the Project
All over Europe, young people are spending more and more time online, thus the
consumption of media is increasing accordingly. However, many people are proving to be
ill-equipped with skills to filter out and sort this growing intake of information, making a
promising opportunity ineffective, and sometimes even harmful. This is why there is an
ever so great need for competences allowing young people to navigate themselves around the wild waters of the Internet and media, recognise content of value, and distinguish fake news.
Even so, such media-literacy skills are generally not taught in public schools, that is why the aim of the project is to enable youth workers with tools to educate young people they work with to become more conscious users of the Internet and consumers of media. We strive to provide the participants with useful techniques – within the framework of non-formal education – to promote and enhance critical thinking, and to raise awareness of media-literacy.
Throughout the project, we will implement workshops, individual- and group exercises to
help youth workers gain experience themselves in the field of focus, thus enabling them
to improve the media-literacy and critical thinking skills of the youth.
The training will take place in Szeged, Hungary. The city is located in the Southern Great-Plains region in Hungary, it takes 2 hours by train to get to from the Airport of Budapest.
The accommodation for the participants will be in gender based rooms with 2-3-4 separated beds and bathrooms, located at a comfortable walking distance from the city centre. The meeting room where most of the activities will take place will be right in the hotel.
