Online citizens
(Youth Exchange)

 

Be in charge of your online behavior!

 

/5. 09. - 14. 09. 2022/Burgas/ Bulgaria

Organizator of the project: New Society

The youth exchange will take place between the 5th of September and to 14th of September 2022 in Burgas, Bulgaria.

While social media now plays a vital role in the everyday lives of young people as citizens, education systems across the developed world have been slow to react. Extremist groups rely on false promises of status and purpose, manipulation, conspiracy, and divisive rhetoric to exploit young people online. Against these methods, critical thinking skills and media literacy, social and emotional skills, and meaningful digital citizenship capacities are a strong defense. 

Objectives of the course:

Тhe project is designed to teach 18 to 30-year-olds about media literacy, critical thinking and digital citizenship, encouraging young people to be positive voices online while increasing their resilience to hate and extremism. Using a non-formal educational approach, the project helps the participants become more informed citizens, critical consumers and empowered producers of content.
