The main focus of this project is the promotion of the processes of reconciliation and intercultural dialogue in the Western Balkans, through networking, mutual learning, collaboration and co-creation of the youth. All the while, the aim is to increase the level of media literacy and capacities of young people for social action (both individually and in collaboration), as well as creating common media content that interprets the most important cultural, social and ecological challenges that societies in the post-conflict countries of the Western Balkans are still facing.
By organizing different media and digital literacy courses, the project will empower the young people ages 16 to 22 from Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia, through raising the levels of the media and online literacy, as well as their personal and professional development. We believe that by achieving this goal, we are able to encourage the youth to better understand the ways in which social networks and other forms of digital communication channels affect social and political processes by influencing the public opinion; how services based on AI primarily affect our daily decisions and choices, and how to recognize and react on numerous manipulation methods in the digital environment.
Through partnership with the organization Intera from Mostar, we are realizing Youth Media Hub within the joint regional programme “Dialogue for the Future” (DFF), jointly led by UNDP, UNICEF and UNESCO, and funded by UN PBF.
