Digital Media Skills for Inclusion

With this project we aim to empower youth workers and youth activists to become conscious new media actors and develop their critical thinking skills.

New media is a powerful force in forming our perception of reality. The recent technological developments have brought profound changes to the way we access and consume news. Today almost everybody is connected to the Internet and can post information, pictures, videos and comments which can go viral. This means that they can potentially reach millions of people around the world and influence their attitude to a given issue. The digital revolution can empower but this power comes with big responsibility. In various parts of Europe and neighbouring countries young people face different challenges related to media literacy, in particular media bias, hate speech, cyberbullying, grassroots xenophobia propagated by media and social networks, discrimination and exclusion. How to stay informed but to avoid misinformation about minority groups? How to distinguish between reliable information and various forms of propaganda? How to confront and counter hate speech online? How to do inclusive youth work online?

We would like to carry out the DMSI project to empower youth workers and youth activists to help and teach young people how to become conscious media and news consumers, to apply their critical thinking skills and to contribute to more inclusive and tolerant societies through non-formal education methods like debates, role play games, open discussions, working in small groups, etc.

The training course will be held in Antalya, Turkey in September 2020 (7 days + 2 travel days). It will bring together 26 youth workers and youth activists from 8 Erasmus+ programme and partner countries.
