Aims & objectives

Like the Story was an innovative 5-day Erasmus+ training course designed to develop the competences of youth workers, trainers and youth leaders to engage and empower young people to be critical of their information intake and source. Including to understand the effects that the sharing uncensored information may have in relation to the topic of migration and refugees.
