Aims & objectives

This project sought to integrate media and cyber hygiene tools into human rights education and youth work curricula. The project also attempted to create a counter and alternative narratives as a media output and disseminate this practice in the network. The study session brought together to youth workers/trainers already engaged and experienced in human rights education, members and non-members of HREYN.

The aim was to equip the member organisations and youth workers with the capacity to use media literacy educational tools in youth work and human rights education. For this cause, the following objectives were deliberated:

- to map the realities and needs of young audiences, those participants are in touch with, in terms of media literacy and cyber hygiene;
- to explore various tools in media literacy education and to promote critical thinking among participants by sharing with them the practices and experts’ input;
- to give space for creating and re-creating tools and methods in human rights education including an aspect of media literacy education;
- to plan strategies for integrating new practices into the agenda of the member organisations and network;
- to engage participants in the development of an action plan to dissemi- nate the study session outcomes.
