Media is the Future
Start date: Jun 17, 2014, End date: Jun 16, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Before the youth exchange “Media is the Future” together with our partners we identified the need to work on topics as media, journalism and media freedom. Taking in consideration the modern trends and the fast development of technology and media tools, we noted that young people need further education on the topic of media, especially learning how to use all media available today. The youth exchange took place in August, in Bertogne, Belgium. During the 8 days of the exchange 40 young people, were able to learn and examine that media play a very important role in today's world and especially the messages transferred through them. This exchange was a follow-up of a previously organised exchange with the similar topic by ""Wireless"". The group of participants was interested in the project topic and all of them had good knowledge of technology and were able to work on their tasks and to generate great results of their work. The created program of the project and the workshops trained young people about various fields, starting with usage of IT tools, internet security, photography workshops, photo and video editing, journalism through essay writing and public speaking and the importance of relevant information- how they find it and how they deliver it. The participants, the local community of Bertogne, and Belgium as a country felt the benefits of this project initiative. The influence of the project has been transferred as a domino- effect through the activities of Wireless but also by spreading the word from the participants. On a long term, we have already agreed with some of the participants to help them work on similar topics and create projects for their peers and colleagues. Some of these activities already took place in Bastogne, where participants already did meetup activities discussing media freedom.
