The skill to be free

17-27 September 2020

Youth Exchange

Derin Bulgaria



In the recent years whole Europe is a target of countless campaigns with black PR, fake news and media manipulations, which frighten our democracies, create conflicts and hatred among our societies and are often a serious treat for the national security of our countries. The media literacy is the only democratic tool for protecting our citizens and we believe that it is a key competence, which each European should acquire from a very early age. No matter what choices we make each day of our life, the ability to critically analyze all the information we receive is the main skill making us free!


Goals of the project

 Building in the youth-participants of high level of emotional intelligence for making them less susceptible to emotional manipulation and letting them have more harmonious and peaceful relationships.
 Presenting to the participants the concept of Netiquette and helping them build a positive image in the online space, which will allow them to be respected members of society and to develop their careers without creating doubts about their professional and personal qualities in social networks.
