MEDIActive Youth

Our two previous and one ongoing E+ projects successfully launched a global initiative in improving media literacy. By now, capacities of 28 youth NGO’s from Europe, Latin America and Africa have been raised, a Transnational Youth Magazine (TYM), e-magazine for youth policy has been launched, and online courses in media literacy and activism have been created. The overall objective of this two-years Project is to continue with building capacities of youth NGOs globally and with developing new high-quality open education resources (OER) in the field of media/news literacy. Particular attention is given here to the Balkans within the broader European context, and this project will enable it to join the MEDIActive youth initiative, but also to strengthen the dialogue and post-conflict reconciliation in this region.


1. Increasing the capacity of youth NGOs/workers/activists from 6 Balkan countries in the field of news literacy, critical thinking and media activism, and fostering their active participation in society.

2. Creating high-quality multilingual OER for an innovative learning on news literacy and critical thinking.

3. Further improving the TYM by engaging youth activists from Balkans to start write for it, which will:
a) empower an informational/media hub between Europe, Africa and Latin America in the field of youth policy;
b) foster post-conflict reconciliation, and promoting the EU and the EU values in the Balkan countries.

In a world where the role of media has been so great that the term ‘mediacracy’ (the rule of media) has been frequently used to describe it, the need for media and news literacy and media activism of young people and youth NGOs is apparent. The media are not simple transmitters, but crucial creators of messages and have a pivotal role in creating and swaying public opinion.
