Mladinska izmenjava StereoMedia
Start date: Aug 1, 2015,

On our youth exchange StereoMedia we're going to focus on stereotypes about youth in media and through it strengthen their awareness of their position in society. By using methods of non-formal learning (social and creative workshops and games, debates, outdoor activities, teamwork, etc.) we're going to encourage intercultural dialogue, and strengthen critical thinking, as well as create a safe environment for development of young people’s talents, creativity, and for acquiring journalist writing skills. The main result of the youth exchange will be online newspaper, prepared by young participants, who will also get the opportunity to interact with the local community, which will culminate in a press conference, open to everyone interested.
There are going to be 20 young participants with less opportunities on our youth exchange (aged 16 - 25) from 5 different countries (Bulgaria, Macedonia, Hungary, Spain, and Slovenia). All organisations are members of YUWG working group (for inclusion of young people with less opportunities), which is a part of SCI (Service Civil International). We are well prepared for such youth, and are providing them with needed attention, giving them the opportunity for social inclusion and fitting into the society.
Young people are going to be a part of every activity on the youth exchange, which will strengthen their self-worth, and therefore lead to increased self-confidence and independence. By interacting with a group, and being creative in an international environment, they will be under intercultural learning process, which will positively impact their tolerance, and accepting differences. Together with their European colleagues, they will develop their own concept of European citizenship. What is more, by acquiring new journalist writing skills without using stereotypes, they will increase their potential for employability.
