1-5 September 2021 | Galbiate (Lecco), Italy

5 full days training course designed to offer new skills and tools to enhances competences and knowledge of youth workers interested in working with young people on the topic of media literacy, fake news and misinformation.

Young Generation, called also digital natives surf on the internet, spending increasing amount of their time consuming digital media and creating networks via online social networks, combining global connectivity with local roots. In online world young people find a place to share experiences, ideas and point of views, but they “wish to have access to news and information that is understandable, youth friendly and not misleading” especially due to the general sense of negativity regarding internet caused by the linked risks of privacy violation and exposure to potentially harmful contents.

During a Consultation for the Structured Dialogue and policymakers’ objectives, young people were asked to propose solutions targeted on their needs and they suggested educational programmes to develop media literacy and better education of youth professionals to address the lack of knowledge and skills amongst youth workers, teachers and others of the online world.

The project MISS TO YOUNG PEOPLE, is in line with the solutions proposed and aims to face this lack of knowledge and skills in the topic of media and digital literacy and boost youth work competences in this area on partner organization for a more innovative and higher quality youth work.

It consist in 5 full training days, from the 1st to the 5th of September 2021 (travel days excluded) and the specific objectives are:

- develop deep understanding of the issues related to youth at risk, especially NEETs and youth with fewer opportunities;

- develop deep understanding on the risks and challenges young people face online and the issue related to media usage and improve youth workers competences to deal with these issues with their target groups, including and especially young people with fewer opportunities;

- increase youth workers capacity, sense of initiative and motivation to carry out high quality activities dealing with these issues with their target groups;

- furnish concrete learning tools and methods based on non-formal learning for developing efficient projects and activities addressed to their young people on the topic;
