Mediaterranea is a non-profit organization founded in 2013 by 3 youngsters.Their aim was to get actively involved in improving and inspiring the society with media.From this point , Mediaterranea was not anymore just an idea but a significant support to all those who want to step out of their comfort zone and improve this society.
Based in Thessaloniki, we took actively part in various initiatives at local level.In cooperation with University of Macedonia , we promoted Erasmus+ and non-formal education.Moreover,we provided innovative digital literacy workshops in the local Roma Community working closely with Faros tou kosmou institution. Furthermore, we organized an exhibition after providing photo shooting lessons to refugees.Also we have connections with an ecological network in Thessaloniki, and are regularly doing activities together. For example, we have been providing voluntary media services to the GreenWave Festivals
On an international level, we have been active by working with several funds.Since February 2016 we are part of a project funded through EU/Turkey about promoting Civil Society Dialogue through Lifelong Learning and Media Literacy LEARNING MEDIA. In its course we participated in 4 international Training Courses, held 4 local workshops, produced 10 relevant videos and audiovisual material.
