After a successful workshop in Podgorica, this webinar for YEAs will highlight the importance of ensuring the participation of youth in programmes, initiatives and activities on media literacy.
It is vital to engage youth in the creation and dissemination of media literacy knowledge, therefore the main aim of this webinar is to train YEAs to become peer educators all over the Western Balkans.
After the completion of all MIL workshops and webinars, our YEAs will be ready to share their knowledge with young people in elementary schools all over the Western Balkans.
For more information on the future peer-to-peer MIL workshops by YEAs, follow our channels!
The webinar is led by journalists from SEENPM Network.
