Training course “The stories of exclusion and discrimination through media lens” 09.11.-17.11.2022 in Gerrards Cross, London, UK
The project funded by Erasmus+, training course ‘The Stories of Social Exclusion and Discrimination through Media Lens’ gathered 36 youth workers and educators coming from North Macedonia, UK, Italy, Bulgaria, Greece, Serbia, Turkey, Germany, France, Latvia, Portugal and Romania.
The goal of this project ‘The Stories of Social Exclusion and Discrimination through Media Lens ’ was to contribute to inclusive growth by advancing the competences of youth workers to use media as tools for addressing social exclusion and discrimination.
The project provided youth workers an opportunity to increase their knowledge and understanding on the concepts of social exclusion and discrimination, to experience several media tools uncovering the process of social exclusion and discrimination and the impact of media on shaping our beliefs and opinions especially towards groups such as refugees, migrants, homeless people, drug users or people with different intellectual, mental and psychical disabilities.
Moreover, youth workers have increased their competences to build a constructive dialogue and interaction between groups facing social exclusion and discrimination and young people as essential steps in building socially inclusive societies.
Main goal of the project is to advance the competences of youth workers to use media as tools for addressing social exclusion and discrimination.
The participants have gained skills and knowledge by media tools that can be used in addressing social exclusion and discrimination at their work with young people and raising their awareness on the issues.
Moreover, the participants have shared good practices from their work and the project will increase the quality of their activities. The participants have improved their knowledge about Erasmus+ Programme and strengthened cooperation between partner organizations and encouraged development of new projects contributing to building socially inclusive societies.
The training course has targeted youth workers and educators (18+) that are strongly motivated to work on development and improvements of their competencies in tackling issues related to social exclusion, discrimination, building socially inclusive societies and using media tools to address the issues of social exclusion and discrimination and to engage young people in the process of building socially inclusive societies.
Despite the hardworking and elaborated topic, the participants had a really great time exploring the beauties and landmarks of London, sharing different cultures and traditions between them, debate and share their opinions and points of view, learning foreign languages and idioms, raising intercultural competences, making friends and fellow friends from all over the Europe, learning and sharing intercultural values and differences.
From London With Love,
