In a post-truth world, media literacy is a constructive way to respond to growing pressure of false news, twisted data and banalities. The media space is crowded not just with false information, but also with discriminating ideas arising out of fear and prejudices. Therefore, one way of ameliorating current cultural and moral insecurities in Europe would be fostering stronger critical thinking and the best starting point is to educate the educators in order to multiply the effect as fast as possible. The main activity of the project is a one week long training course in Zadar. Its aim is to bring together youth workers from 10 European countries in order to mutually develop competences connected with media literacy and critical thinking.
An active citizen is an individual with a critical approach to media events. European values, such as respect for human dignity, freedom, democracy, equality, the rule of law and respect for human rights, including the rights of minorities are threatened by the rise of extremism and radicalisation - phenomena often fueled by media frenzy. With this project we want to educate youth workers and enable transfer of skills in the field of media literacy. Main objective of this training course is to equip youth workers with knowledge, skills and methods needed for promoting media literacy and critical thinking in their daily work with young people.
Specific objectives include developing critical thinking skills to understand how media messages shape our culture and society and to recognize bias, spin, misinformation and lies. Moreover, we want to foster understanding of the consequences that media have on the formation of stereotypes and prejudices, racism and intolerance, to encourage and empower youth workers to access, analyze and evaluate media messages by using digital tools. Finally, youth workers will learn to create and distribute their own media messages in a skillful manner through experiential learning by using free digital platforms.

Methodology & Working flow

In the preparation phase, participants will be given tasks to analyse media coverage of topics such as Islamophobia, European attitude towards immigration, climate change, healthy food etc, which they will present during the third day of the TC.
We will use non-formal methods in activities during the training course. Activities will include presentations, research, analyzing, group and individual work, storytelling, exchange of skills, knowledge, experiences and good practice in the field of youth work. During the TC we will encourage you to reflect on your learning process and support you in writing a Youthpass. At the end of the TC we will provide you a Youthpass certificate.
The programme will will be based on participatory methods in order to offer space for interaction between participants and sharing of ideas. In the spirit of informal and non-formal learning, there will be space for you to contribute to the programme with your own knowledge and skills, undertake your own analyses, including reflections on competences acquired during the activity. During the “Window of opportunity” activity participants will have the opportunity to exchange and share knowledge and skills by organising a workshop for other participants.
In the dissemination phase, participants will support youth in their local community to develop digital media content and communication strategy which will then be spread through partners’ networks.
