What we did so far

We were pleased to have 12 highly-motivated youth workers from Albania, Egypt, Jordan and Tunisia to our International Training on Citizen Journalism. The training started in Athens (from 14 to 16 March) where participants learnt more about the history and theory of citizen journalism through non-formal methods. Then, the group travelled to Sofia for the second part of the training (from 18 to 20 March), where they were practicing their journalistic skills. The training finished in Bari, Italy (21 – 23 March) with a focus on combatting fake news and building raise-awareness campaigns.

The youth workers are now ready to supply local youth with valuable skills and knowledge on citizen journalism.
