Civic Media Engagers project has brought 3 universities and 3 NGOs from Norway, Finland and Romania together with the aim of increasing youth organizations’/youth workers/educators’ capacity and skills in the field of media literacy for young people, for promoting democratic values and inclusion, and increasing young people’s civic engagement.
To reach these goals, we will develop the following innovative educational resources and publications:
Interactive platform to promote young people’s media projects and media literacy community network among educators and youth workers
We are developing a platform to promote young people’s media projects, but also to develop and promote educational interactive videos that youth workers could use in encouraging young people to create more media, while promoting inclusion and civic participation.
In order to enhance the cooperation between the partners, a joint-staff short-term training course will be organized for partners’ staff. The training course will include activities such as:
Sharing and learning experience among project partners on topics such as conducting research on youth media, digital tools and innovative storytelling tools for supporting youth media participation;
Sharing experience on media youth projects, such as Faktuell from Norsensus Mediaforum;
Sharing experience on using media for more youth civic engagement;
Learning about H5P technology for teaching and educational interactive videos, etc.
Who is behind the project?
Our story started in 2019 with a creative friends talk and the project has been put into action with participation of the inspiring people from University of South Eastern Norway (coordinator), University of Helsinki, Babes Bolyai University, Fundatia Danis, The Finnish Society on Media Education (Mediakasvatusseura), and Norsensus Mediaforum. We had also financial support of Aktiv Ungdom Erasmus+.
