Project Description:

The Youth Exchange will take place in the end of June – the beginning of July in the town of Dobrinishte, Bulgaria, having the main theme Media Literacy. It will include 30 young people aged 18-30 from Bulgaria, Cyprus, Greece, Italy, Lithuania and Malta.

During the project participants will have the opportunity to come together, exchange experiences, experiment different techniques and explore media literacy and social inclusion.

Some of the objectives are:

- To understand what media literacy is.

- To introduce a digital media environment. To learn who the “players” in cyberspace are.

- To provide tools to young people to apply critical thinking on the information they receive and to work with media and multimedia content.

- To develop the skills needed to identify opinions from facts

- To be aware of the nature of fake news

- To acquire fact checking skills

- To develop competences in audio-visual technics and editing

- To raise awareness on hate speech off-line and online.

- To develop competences to create media content

Among the most important skills from `the kitchen` we will acquire or improve are those for:

- Tracking sources of information, including recognition of sponsored and paid content;

- Verifying the authenticity of photo and video material online, such as checking for old images transmitted as current;

- Lateral reading and perception of the data in details

- Evaluating sources of information through domain verification, assessment of source expertise, quote verification, etc.

- Checking URLs, checking social networking accounts.

This project will work on developing a greater understanding of how youth perceive information and how they process it. Working on methods to help young people gain skills and competences in the fields of media and social media so that we can enhance their employability while still learning through the methods of non-formal and informal education.

Working methods will vary from theories to practices, discussions, sharing and reflection and will be based on non-formal education, all centered on different aspects of inclusion and health in the youth context. It will be both participants-based as well as peer to peer sharing, discussions. Specially designed methods will be used during the Youth Exchange to interact and involve the youngsters in active participation in each section. Different active exercising in the nature will be organized with the involvement of local youth to tackle the topic of media literacy for intercultural dialogue and inclusion.

Where Do I Belong…………………...

A great question. A question that most of us have asked our self’s, our friend everyone.

Do we have an answer though, is it possible?

Well in Romania during the course of this Youth Exchange we tried and we tried hard. For me personally I kind of know how to answer this question to myself now. And for me the answer is ‘’everywhere’’. 

And why is that because in this amazing project I learn some valuable lessons. Lessons about discriminations lessons about stereotypes. I had the chance to be in the shoes of an immigrant trying to find asylum or in the shoes of a nationalist extremist activist, that gave me the ability to understand stuff to see the world through a different eye and to realize that everything is A MATER OF PERSPECTIVE. And that perspective led me to my answer. 

WDIB was an amazing project for me one of the best I attended or probably the best. The OTI team as always was amazing with the workshops and the OTI Romania team was spot on everything through accommodation (on that lovely small and homey hotel with good food) through general organization of the entire project. An amazing team that was always there to support each and every one of us with all our needs. 

I am really grateful I took part to this magnificent project not only because I get to learn all the stuff I did but because I had the chance to mix and meet lots of new people, but I also had the blessing to make new true friends. Friends that I will cherish for the whole of my life .

Until we meet again all
